The Mission of the PGSO is “to enhance the quality of life of the people of Prince George and surrounding region through the power and joy of live orchestral music.” We had planned a series of live chamber concerts for audiences of 50 people this spring, beginning January 30. But alas, Covid-19 has thrown a wrinkle into our plan and because of BC Health regulations, we are not able to present live concerts at this time.
We plan to return to live concerts as soon as health regulations permit. However, in the meantime, we are pleased to announce three upcoming streamed concerts:
Picturing Spring in Winter
Michael Hall conducts two hauntingly beautiful pieces for winds and strings. The first, Siegfried Idyll by Richard Wagner was written for his wife’s birthday and was performed outside her bedroom as she awoke on the morning of her birthday. The second piece is thought to be one of the finest of compositions written for nine musicians: Nonet Op 139 by Josef Rheinberger.
KinderConcert: String Beans
For kids 3 to 8 and anyone who is young at heart! Join us as we bring back this kinderconcert hit of 2019!
