It's a season for celebrating at the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra.

In honour of its 37 years of operation, audiences can expect to hear music that “pushes the boundaries.”

“It’s the perfect music to perform while we look forward to our future, and we are so excited to use this repertoire to thank our community for allowing us to share our music year after year,” Concertmaster Christian Robinson said.

The orchestra's March 2 show features John Estacio’s vibrant Canadian overture, Frenergy and Schumann’s Symphony No. 3, Rhenish.

The orchestra’s new Principal Cellist, Erika Nielsen, will make her debut as a Sudbury Symphony Orchestra featured soloist during this concert, performing Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No. 1.

Celebrations of the orchestra’s accomplishments will continue throughout the evening, as Maestro Victor Sawa will be presented with a card signed by patrons, donors and musicians of the symphony to recognize his longstanding commitment to the orchestra.

Following the concert, audience members are invited to meet musicians and celebrate at a post-concert reception catered with cupcakes, presented by Sudbury’s Create-A-Cake Bakery.

The show begins at 8 p.m. at Glad Tidings.
