A Toronto Symphony
- Sat. Mar. 9, 2013 at 8:00 PM
Roy Thomson Hall
The New Creations Festival wraps up with a fantastic concert highlighted by the premières of two TSO commissions. An inspired new work for electrified orchestra by Andrew Staniland continues the festival theme of music from the past inspiring the music of today. Steven Mackey's Four Iconoclastic Episodes for electric guitar and orchestra was inspired by music he enjoys, including jazz/rock fusion, African pop, and Chicago blues. And Tod Machover's new piece is a unique collaboration with you, the citizens of Toronto.
Each concert of the New Creations Festival also has spectacular pre- and post-concert events, so come early and stay late!
Join us in the North Lobby during intermission for an informative chat with Gary Kulesha, TSO Composer Advisor.
