Symphony Nova Scotia presents the 2009 Library Series

Symphony Nova Scotia presents the 2009 Library Series


Halifax, NS Symphony Nova Scotia is once again back at the Halifax Public Library for a series of fun and informative chamber music performances. Please bring your lunch and join us for wonderful music and entertaining stories about the composers from host Max Kasper. All concerts are free of charge, and begin at 12:00 noon.


Still Movements

Wednesday, April 29 Spring Garden Memorial Branch, Halifax

Friday, May 1 Alderney Gate Branch, Dartmouth

In this concert, the Library Players explore the evolution of the "movements" of a piece of music. Most symphonies and quartets that we know all follow a familiar four-movement pattern. Using the music of Haydn, Mozart, Bach and Purcell, we will illustrate the differences and evolution of the string quartet movements.


The Library Players are:

Yi Lee violin

Anita Gao-Lee violin

Jane Levitt viola

Max Kasper bass


Christmas in May

Thursday, May 14 Spring Garden Memorial Branch, Halifax

We're pleased to welcome back Halifax's own Rjouissance as they once again play at the Library. Join us for some festive Baroque music on period instruments. Though most of the music was written for the Christmas holidays, it's wonderful to hear anytime of the year (...and it's never too early to start preparing for Christmas!).


Rjouissance is:

Karen Langille baroque violin
Ivor Rothwell baroque bassoon, recorder
Shawn Whynot harpsichord
Hilary Brown baroque cello


The Best Music You've Never Heard of...

Thursday, May 28 Spring Garden Memorial Branch, Halifax

Friday, May 29 Alderney Gate Branch, Dartmouth


Most of us have only heard about 5% of the composers out there. Even the ones that were very famous in their time and wrote wonderful music have somehow become overshadowed by the "Greats." It's time to hear some of these composers again. The music is well worth it! Join the Gatto Dolce Duo as they perform music by Pleyel, Matthews, Aslan, Neher, Boismortier, Corrette and Romberg, to name a few!


The Gatto Dolce Duo is:

Colin Matthews cello

Max Kasper Bass
