Welcome to Ontario Philharmonic
Greetings Dear Friends,
There is much music greatness to expand upon as we spring forth from the magnificent season of Beethoven just experienced. And so the works of the incomparable Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Beethoven form the foundation of OP’s “Philharmonic Spectaculars”.
Our 59th season of presenting stellar works with the area’s finest and most talented musicians is a true reflection of your continuous kind and generous support. This fusion, esprit de corps, carries all of us forward to these musical heights.
We are delighted to present in our Light Classics series the outstanding Michael Bridge, accordionist extraordinaire - Canadian Champion and winner of the world’s most important competitions.
OP’s ever-popular Masters Series presents thirteen year old prodigy, pianist Daniela Liebman, just returned from her European Tour; the tremendous Canadian talent, violin virtuoso Alexandre Da Costa brings down the house with Tchaikovsky’s genius. Returning by popular demand is Etsuko Kimura, violinist and OP Concertmaster, rounding out our Masters Series.
The smashing musicianship of Lighthouse, featuring the classic quintessential music of the 70’s and 80’s with classical string arrangements delights both musical sensibilities. Our deepest gratitude goes to the iconic musicians of Lighthouse for their generous support of OP in this benefit concert.
Noble works, Mendelssohn’s “Reformation” Symphony, Beethoven’s “Eroica” and Chopin’s emotionally charged 2nd Piano Concerto among them, are guaranteed to capture and enchant you throughout the season.
A final word in expressing our excitement and anticipation goes to you, OP’s beloved audience. Your continued support, enthusiastic and authentic applause is reflected in each note voiced, in each program delivered. We thank you for inspiring us.
