Maestro Rolf Bertsch conducts the Civic as we launch the concert performing Mikhail Glinka’s Overture to Ruslan and Lyudmilla as the Orchestra opens the concert. The balance of the Concert will feature works selected by the young musicians: Typhen Chan (Violin) – Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D Major; Sua Kwoun (Cello) – Prokofiev Sinfonia Concertante in E Minor; Joan Herget (Cello) – Dvorak Cello Concerto in B Minor; and Jessica Yuma (Piano) – Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 in B Flat Minor.
As always, there is a pre-concert chat or performance which begins at 1:45 pm in the lobby,and this version will feature a brief recital by the runners-up from the C3 competition.
The Calgary Civic Symphony was founded in 1975 as Calgary’s volunteer orchestra. Over the years, the Civic has swelled to over 80 musicians. With an interesting diversity in professions, its members come together each week to rehearse complex orchestral works. Under the baton of Artistic Director and Conductor Rolf Bertsch, the Symphony shapes and polishes performances that are truly brilliant!
