Sinfonia Toronto Opens 10th Anniversary Season

Sinfonia Toronto and Conductor Nurhan Arman will open the orchestra's 10th Anniversary season on Friday, October 17, 8 p.m. at Grace Church on-the-Hill (300 Lonsdale Road). The concert, titled 'Mozart in Love,' will feature the brilliant Canadian pianist Angela Park in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9.

Pianist Angela Park has established herself as one of Canada's leading young musicians. Equally accomplished in both the solo repertoire and chamber music, Angela's versatility has led to performances across Canada as well as in United States, Europe, and Mexico.

Born in London, Ontario, Angela began her musical studies at the age of three. With the guidance of James Anagnoson, she went on to become the youngest Gold Medal winner in history of the Western Ontario Conservatory of Music, as well as a consistent recipient of numerous awards and prizes at Ontario Provincial Festivals, the Canadian National Music Festival and the Canadian Music Competition.

Angela won the Grand Prize at the 2001 Grace Welsh Prize for Piano in Chicago, and Fifth Prize in the 2003 World Piano Competition in Cincinnati. In 2006 Angela was the only Canadian representative and prize winner at the Honens International Piano Competition in Calgary; and most recently, she obtained a medal at the 2007 Maria Canals International Competition in Barcelona.

Angela has performed as soloist with Orchestra London Canada, Sinfonia Toronto, the Canadian Sinfonietta, the UWO Symphony Orchestra, and the University of Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Her live performances have been recorded and broadcast on CBC National Radio and on National Public Radio in the US.

The 'Mozart in Love' program will also include Elgar's beloved Serenade and Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence.

There will be a free post-concert reception, giving audience members a chance to meet the orchestra members, conductor and soloist.

Online discount tickets are $35 adult, $27 senior, $7 student (16-29) and can be purchased at or at regular price by phone 416-499-0403 or at the door.
