After nearly two years away from the stage and live audiences, the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra (MSO) returns to launch its 50th anniversary season on Nov. 20 at the Living Arts Centre. 

When it hits the stage at Hammerson Hall, A Triumphant Celebration will mark the MSO’s first concert before a live audience in 22 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The orchestra describes the performance as “a thrilling live concert featuring some of the most well-known works in classical music.” 

Maestro Denis Mastromonaco and the MSO will treat the audience to soul-stirring music by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart and Vivaldi, organizers say. 

The MSO says as a token of its appreciation for returning to live concerts, it will offer patrons “Welcome Back” ticket pricing at $50 for the Nov. 20 performance. 

The concert will feature Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony, the fourth movement from Mendelssohn’s Reformation Symphony and Autumn from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons performed by MSO concertmaster Corey Gemmell. 

Guest conductor Miranda Brant will lead the orchestra in the overture from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. 

Also, Mastromonaco will host a free “Meet the Maestro” pre-concert chat via Zoom on Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Pre-registration for the chat is recommended. 

To book socially distanced seating options, call the LAC box office at 905-306-6000.
