THIRD SYMPHONY: Grades 7-12

When Jean Sibelius wrote his 3rd Symphony in 1906-07, he turned his back on what was most in fashion at the time and tried something so new that it took a few years before the musical world really appreciated it – but was this actually a failure of marketing? Join Maestro Robert Franz and the full Windsor Symphony Orchestra as they deconstruct Sibelius’ Symphony No. 3 to learn how the composer departed from the grandiose fashion of the day and explored simplicity to create something new.

 

The cost per student is $6.50 including HST ($3.50 including HST for compensatory schools).  We are happy to work with you to find a price that works with your budget!  One free chaperone ticket is included for every 8 student tickets purchased.  For groups of 10 or fewer seats, cost is $5 including HST per person (adults and students).  Our early booking rate of $5.00 including HST is available until Thanksgiving!
