On Saturday, May 27th at a spectacular season finale concert sponsored by Scotiabank, the Peterborough Symphony Orchestra will take audience members on a vivid musical adventure.
Through the music of Grieg, Liadov and Stravinsky, the classical elements of earth, water and fire will be explored before leaving Terra firma for outer space. Holst’s large-scale orchestral suite The Planets will be the guide for a melodic tour of the galaxy featuring the Women’s Chorus of the Peterborough Singers.
This concert marks the first time in over a decade that the PSO and members of the Peterborough Singers have performed together. Both organizations are looking forward to collaborating again.
General admission tickets for The Planets are available from the Showplace Performance Centre box office at a cost of $38.50 for adults, $10 for students. Visit the box office in-person (290 George St. N, Peterborough), online or call 705.742.7469 to purchase tickets.
Note that this concert will not take place at Showplace, but at Emmanuel United Church East—formerly known as George Street United Church (534 George St. N, Peterborough).
Concert ticket holders are invited to attend Meet the Maestro, a pre-concert chat with PSO Music Director & Conductor, Michael Newnham, in the church at 6:40 p.m. before the concert at 7:30 p.m.
