with conductor Justin Pambianchi & pianist Chee-Hang See.
In 2020, the world will be celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birth year.
Our aim is to make a significant, Canadian contribution to the music industry’s celebrations by offering a concert cycle featuring the great master. The purpose is not merely to commemorate #Beethoven250 but also:
- to bring together music students from various conservatories and universities across the country.
- to promote the work of living Canadian composers by featuring newly written works, and
To this end, we will present a cycle of five concerts featuring the piano concerti of Beethoven. Each concerto will be paired with a newly commissioned piece by a living composer. The orchestra will be made up of musicians from such institutions as UofT, UBC, McGill, Western, UdeM, MUN, and other institutions country-wide. We would like to represent all the provinces and territories.
Follow us on our journey to #Beethoven250, and keep checking back for updates!
