The Season Finale of Mississauga’s Symphony Orchestra is Coming This Weekend

 

If you’re in the mood for some classical music, then come to the Living Arts Centre to hear the voices of Canada’s top Sopranos.

On Saturday, May 25, the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra will welcome the mighty Toronto Mendelssohn Choir for a season finale that will feature a performance of Symphony No. 2, “The Resurrection”, by Gustav Mahler.

The Resurrection Symphony is the first of Mahler’s symphonies to make use of voices and words as well as the orchestra and the piece that set him on the path toward the grandly scaled style of symphony that was to become his legacy.

The performance will feature Canadian Sopranos such as Christina Campsall, who was awarded first place in the Graduate School Level/Young Professional category at the 2014 NATS Competition, and placed second in the 2014/15 Clifford Poole Vocal Competition.

Campsall will be joined by Jonelle Sills, who was a winner of the York University Concerto Competition, received first place in the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) auditions and the title of “Most promising singer”.

The MSO is designated as one of Mississauga’s six pillars of arts, culture and heritage. The orchestra offers entertaining and increasingly sophisticated programs from the classic and popular repertoires of symphonic music, all performed to high artistic standards.

For this fifth season of symphony music, the MSO is being conducted by Denis Mastromonaco, who has over 20 years of experience conducting. He has previously worked with New York’s Orchard Park Orchestra, Czech Republic’s West Bohemian National Orchestra and the National Academy Orchestra of Canada.

The concert begins at 8pm. Concert ticket prices start at $55. Special pricing is available for seniors, families, and patrons under 15. Complimentary underground parking is included with every ticket purchase.
