Time: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
This homage to nature will leave you spellbound. Vaughan William’s violin concerto, The Lark Ascending, features the WSO’s Principal Second Violinist Émilie Paré. Earthbeat, by multi-award-winning Canadian composer Vincent Ho, reflects Canada’s history and its Indigenous peoples in musical form. More than 25 student violinists will join the WSO around the theatre creating a surround sound experience. Robert Rival’s Symphony No. 2 “Water”, composed after a walk on Long Beach on the Pacific coast, captures both nature’s raw force and sense of serenity.
