WSO presents These Things Remain: Netherlands Tour Celebration

Apr 30

  • Time: 7:30 PM

Join the WSO to celebrate the program being played on the Netherlands tour! Given the monumental task of commemorating Canada’s efforts in the liberation of Europe in the Second World War, Matthew Whitall’s moving piece These Things Remain finally receives its world premiere. Commissioned by the WSO to originally mark the occasion of the WSO’s 2020 tour to the Netherlands, the piece for chorus and orchestra will be performed alongside another powerful and rarely performed choral work, Hector Berlioz’ Messe solenelle. In between we’ll hear Franz Schubert’s most famous single work, his ‘unfinished’ symphony.
