TSO April Concerts

Roll over Beethoven,
make room for the Chairman of the Board!
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra
Celebrates Sinatra!

Other April Highlights include
Opera Favourites and Tchaikovsky Symphony 4

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra's Pops Concert Series continues with Celebrate Sinatra, a swinging tribute to the blue-eyed legend from Hoboken. Cincinnati's Jeff Tyzik joins the TSO as guest conductor for the evening's concert, which also features guest vocalist Steve Lippia on scooby-dooby-duties. The programme covers all the classic tunes that made Frankie a legend, from Come Fly with Me and All the Way, to New York, New York and That's Life. There will be three performances only, April 22 at 8pm, April 23 at 2pm and 8pm.

On April 25, Alain Trudel concludes the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra's season with the "little one", Beethoven's Symphony No. 8, and a rousing performance of Shostakovich's popular work, Symphony No. 5.

On April 26 and 27, passion, drama, and epic adventure reign as guest conductor James Gaffigan leads soprano Sally Dibblee, rising tenor (and one of the judges of Bravo's Bathroom Divas) Luc Robert, and the TSO through some of the most popular operas ever written, including works by Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Wagner, Rossini, and more. Opera Favourites features operatic overtures, duets, and interludes from La Bohme, The Barber of Seville, Tristan and Isolde, and many others.

On April 30 and May 1, Estonian conductor Eri Klas makes his TSO debut conducting Tchaikovsky Symphony 4 and master pianist Alexander Toradze returns with Prokofiev's thrilling showpiece, Piano Concerto No. 3.
