Season Finale Concert

AUDIENCE CHOICE: ELGAR and ESTACIO
Guelph Symphony Orchestra’s Season Finale concert will feature the audience’s choice of Elgar’s Enigma Variations.
Elgar dedicated the work “to my friends pictured within”, each variation being a musical sketch of one of his circle of close acquaintances; a musical cryptogram containing the poignant Nimrod Variation.
Also on the program will be Canadian composer John Estacio’s “ Wondrous Light”, composed as a celebration of the Aurora Borealis, and the Grand Winner of the 2016 GSO Under- 23 Concerto Competition, pianist Coral Solomon, playing Chopin’s stunning Concerto No. 1.
