- Mozart—Piano Concerto No. 22: Guest pianist Stephanie Cheng tickles the ivories during Mozart’s ornate concerto—his first to include clarinets. Flutes, bassoons, trumpets, timpani, and strings all join in before the piece’s finale soars to heights reminiscent of Le Nozze di Figaro, on which Mozart was working simultaneously.
- Schumann—Symphony No. 3 in E flat, Rhenish: The German composer’s final symphony drew inspiration from a vacation he and his wife took to the Rhineland. Thus, the compositions five moments are at turns majestic and lively, conjuring images of ancient stone castles and the winding Rhine river.
Oakville Chamber Orchestra
In 1984 a small group of string players gathered together to try out a few songs—starting what would eventually blossom into a full orchestra. While retaining that simple spirit and keeping strings as its core, the Oakville Chamber Orchestra now encompasses wind, brass, and percussion sections, along with a keytar section when called for by Mozart. Yet chamber music remains the orchestra's favorite, and most concerts focus on creating an intimate, small-scale experience. Whether performing on its own, with a special guest soloist, the Oakville Chamber Orchestra continues to be, in the words of Mayor Rob Burton, a "world-class orchestra."
