SSYO in concert with the RSO

Simon Plays Dvorak Saturday April 9, 2016 at 8:00 PM

Simon Fryer, RSO Principal Cello, takes the stage in a decidedly Slavonic program. Considered one of Dvorak's finest achievements, the Cello Concerto has resonated in the classical canon for its nostalgia and its melodic and rhythmic testaments to the Czech countryside. Czech nationalism is also prominent in the sentimental Sixth Symphony which first established Dvorak as a distinctly Slavonic composer.

SSYO Rehearsal Times

SSYO will rehearse with the RSO at Conexus Art Centre on Friday evening at 7:30 PM sharp, and again on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM sharp. SSYO musicians will be provided tickets for the concert on Saturday morning. Tickets can be purchased at the RSO box office, or by clicking here.
