On April 2, 2:30 pm, at Mary St. Center, Whispering River Orchestra presents the third in its Family Concert series: The Masks of Spring, a musical celebration of the many faces of springtime.
From Schubert’s beloved Mass in G with its soaring melodies sung by Amy Dodington, Fabian Arcineagas and Stan Hunter, to Thula Baba, an African Lullaby, and the Beatle’s Eleanor Rigby, the concert will take you on a poetic and musical journey through this many-facetted time of year.
This inspiring afternoon concert engages the whole family with its many contrasting moods. Bach’s joyous Brandenburg Concerto 3 is juxtaposed with a performance of Elgar’s Salut d’Amour by principle violist, Alex Andrews. Guest soloist Celine Cascanette performs Können Tränen meiner Wangen from Bach’s profound St. Mathews Passion, alongside Three Songs of William Blake set to music by Canadian composer Chia Yin Wu in a work commissioned and premiered by Whispering River Orchestra and Chorus in 2019.
Open up to spring with Greater Parry Sound’s own Community Orchestra and Choir! Soloists from Muskoka-Parry Sound are featured, and your neighbours and friends are performing. Listen to the creative voices of your community!
