Cello Phenom Lights up the Stage in NSO's Fires of Creation, Masterworks 6!

Sunday, April 15, 2018 - 14:30

The Niagara Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to introduce a singular guest artist to Niagara audiences at our Masterworks 6 concert, Fires of Creation.  Canadian cellist Bryan Cheng is already a multi-award-winning soloist on the world stage and one of CBC's "2017 30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30".  He makes his NSO debut performing a cornerstone of the repertoire, Elgar's Cello Concerto.  Join Bradley Thachuk and members of the NSO in Partridge Hall, FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre at 2:30 p.m. Sunday April 15 for a truly splendid concert.

Elgar's great work is wistful and beautifully, deceptively simple.  This concert also features John Estacio's evocative Light Eternal, and Symphony No. 5 by Dmitri Shostakovich, his bittersweet symphonic response to Soviet artistic repression.  Fires of Creation explores the many avenues of inspiration and invention in this fascinating concert.
