The Oakville Symphony is returning to the stage for live performances.

Guest conductor Martin MacDonald will lead the orchestra in the opening concert of the Conductor Showcase season Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 6-7) at the Oakville Centre for Performing Arts.

Grammy nominated pianist Kara Huber will also take the stage with the orchestra for Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25.

“Our opening program is a delightful array of sparkling and energizing works carefully curated to highlight the wonderful musicians in our orchestra,” the local symphony said on its website of the opening concert which will also be livestreamed.

“With brilliant and evocative brass fanfares by Copland and Dukas, an early string symphony by an immensely talented young Mendelssohn, young Canadian composer Jordan Pal’s roller coaster On the Double overture, and an enchanting symphony for winds full of melodic charm and wit. . . A grand opening to a season of musical delights.”

The Oakville Symphony is also looking for input into its next Music Director. After attending the concert or watching online, fans will be able to share their impressions in a survey that will be emailed by the Oakville Centre.

With restrictions being lifted, more seats are available at the Oakville Centre.

In-person and livestream tickets are available from the Oakville Centre box office at 905-815-2021.
