Last season we ended on a high note, with the Mysteries concert in May. I then took to the task of cultivating this season’s program during the summer months.
I give a great amount of thought and contemplation to developing a well-balanced program. I really want there to be something for everyone, appealing to our collective eclectic taste in new contemporary music.
As a result, this season we have a line-up of composers, unlike any other, whose music will move you emotionally, intellectually and spiritually through energetic and high calibre performances by featured soloists and the musicians of the Esprit Orchestra.
Half of the repertoire, commissioned by Esprit, is Canadian including five pieces having world premieres. All other works are by acclaimed international composers, including a world premiere, and all but one of the pieces is being performed in Canada for the first time.
This year I truly believe we can offer concert-goers, from all walks of life, an Esprit Experience that is unforgettable. So immerse yourself in the excitement as Esprit brings new pieces into existence and makes today’s best music from around the world part of your live concert experience.
I look forward to seeing you at our first concert of the season, POLARIS, on Thursday October 16, 2014.
