A holiday tradition for the entire family.
A true holiday favourite, this beloved comedy classic features renowned composer John Williams’ charming and delightful score performed live to picture by the RSO. Macaulay Culkin stars as Kevin McCallister, an 8-year-old boy who’s accidentally left behind when his family leaves for Christmas vacation, and who must defend his home against two bungling thieves. Hilarious and heart-warming, Home Alone in Concert is holiday fun for the entire family!
Canadian pianist Katherine Chi plays Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Tchaikovsky’s final and most passionate piece, Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique”, rounds out this program.
Jonathan Crow, concertmaster for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, makes his RSO debut with Brahms’ Violin Concerto. Dvořák’s Serenade showcases the RSO’s wind section.
2019 Juno Award winner Jeremy Dutcher’s music shape-shifts between classical and traditional, between operatic power and the tuneful melodies of his Wolastoq First Nation.
Freedom – the freedom of our physical selves, our movements, and our thoughts – is the focus of this concert. Carmen Braden’s What Happens When We Move and Cris Derksen’s Five Bucks a Head explore movement across the Canadian landscape and Canada’s treaty obligations and history. Frederic Rzewski’s minimalist touchstone Coming Together unravels and reconstructs the text of a letter written by Sam Melville, an architect and eventual casualty of the Attica prison uprising.
