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.

Special Guests: The Guelph Youth Orchestra
Conductor: Judith Yan
