Sudbury Symphony Orchestra presents its next concert, “Viva Vivaldi!” Saturday April 6.
The evening showcases two of the most popular compositions by the beloved Baroque composer, Antonio Vivaldi.
The first is his best-known concerto, Concerto Alla Rustica, also known as Concerto for Strings in G Major.
Topping off this special concert is Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, a musical narrative that captures the sounds and sensations of summer, fall, winter and spring, complete with wind, rain, thunderstorms, snowfall, icicles dripping, sunshine and birdsong.
The concert's guest performer, violinist Jeremy Bell, was a long-time student of former Sudbury Symphony Orchestra music director Metro Kozak.
His pursuit of music education then took him to the University of Toronto, followed by the State University of New York.
Bell is currently a member of the Penderecki String Quartet, and has performed with the quartet and also as a soloist all over the world.
He has received several grants in his career and has been grand prize winner in the Eckhardt Grammatté National competition and the Conseil Québécois’ Prix Opus.
The concert gets underway at 7:30 p.m. at Laurentian University's Fraser Auditorium. Visit sudburysymphony.com for tickets.
