Welcome to the KSO 2019/20 concert season at Flato Markham Theatre (October 19, December 14 and February 8) and Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts (March 20, May 8 and June 26). Highlights of the season include Bartók’s Concerto For Orchestra, as well as Tchaikovsky’s Fourth and Fifth, Shostakovich’s Fifteenth, Prokofiev’s Fourth and Rachmaninoff’s Third symphonies. We are thrilled to welcome back Maxim Bernard in Ravel’s Concerto for Piano in G, Dong Xu in Prokofiev’s Concerto No. 4 (For the Left Hand) and Leonid Nediak in Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 4. Mary Kenedi will make her debut with the KSO in Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 3, Sheng Cai – in Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2, and Leslie Ashworth - in Barber’s Violin Concerto. In June, the KSO and Markham Contemporary Music Festival will return to Cornell Recital Hall for a series of concerts presenting pieces by Stravinsky and a world premiere by Hong Kong Canadian composer Werner Chan. The concert season will conclude on June 27, with a performance at the CBC Glenn Gould Studio, led by renowned Chinese Maestro James Liu and, on July 1, with a Canada Day concert at Unionville Millennium Theatre.
