You’ve made your list. You’ve checked it twice. You know who’s been naughty and you know who’s been nice. But if you’re still struggling to find the perfect gift for a friend or loved one, let the NSO’s upcoming concerts be your perfect guide.
For the classical music lover in your life, the NSO presents Gilbert Conducts Dvořák in January as rising-star Guest Conductor Dina Gilbert leads the NSO in Dvořák’s optimistic Eighth Symphony and Radio-Canada classical “Revelation” Marina Thibeault performs Vasks Concerto for Viola; In March, TorQ Percussion Quartet brings to life the other-worldly imaginings of Dinuk Wijeratne’s Invisible Cities; and in April, Niagara Falls, Ontario native, Jared Dunn returns home as featured soloist on Mozart’s intimate and reflective Piano Concerto No. 24 paired with Stravinsky’s (in)famous The Rite of Spring to conclude the 2022/23 concert season.
In February, the musical couple on your list can celebrate Valentine’s Day and have a swingin’ time at In the Mood. Join NSO Principal Clarinetist Zoltan Kalman and Guest Conductor Jeffrey Pollock for a Big Band bash featuring classic hits from jazz greats like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, and more.
The rock enthusiast will love The Music of Phil Collins and Genesis in March. Collins’ songs from the legendary band Genesis and his solo work have been a consistent soundtrack to our lives. Now they’re presented in a way they’ve never been heard of before – reimagined for full orchestra with an all-star band!
