The Concordia Symphony Orchestra presents Verse and Rhyme on December 17, 3:00 PM at the Robert Tegler Student Centre, 728 Ada Boulevard

This Christmas season the newly re-formed Concordia Symphony Orchestra is proud to present Verse and Rhyme, a program merging two art forms: music and poetry. CSO’s second concert of the 2017–18 season features the works Eight Poems of Emily Dickinson and Knoxville: Summer of 1915, based on James Agee’s poem, by American composers Aaron Copland and Samuel Barber, respectively. The scoring is poignant and revealing, as is the poetry that inspired these compositions, given voice by soprano soloist Jolaine Kerley.

Also in the program is one of the most beloved pieces of the symphonic repertoire: Mahler's Adagietto from Symphony No. 5, a heart-rending love poem to his future wife, Alma Schindler. To end the afternoon, the orchestra will fire up Spanish flair in the ballet music for Three-Cornered Hat, Suite No. 1 by Manuel de Falla.

Tickets are Regular $20, $15 for Students, plus applicable fees.
