The Program

Orchestra Toronto delivers a melodic ode to winter with a special emphasis on the horns. Alongside deeply atmospheric pieces by Mendelssohn and Sibelius is the world premiere of Peter Togni’s saxophone concerto, written for and performed by guest musician Mike Murley.

  • Mendelssohn—The Hebrides Overture: Inspired by a visit to Fingal’s Cave in the titular Scottish islands, Mendelsohn’s symphonic overture subtly evokes the eerie atmosphere of the vast, sea-filled chamber of stone.
  • Sibelius—Symphony No. 2: This four-movement piece by the renowned Finnish composer has turned heads due to more than just its dramatic finale—many believe it was written as a call for Finland’s independence from Russia. Even though Sibelius himself never confirmed that, the symphony still has become so connected with the country’s struggle for independence that is popularly called the Symphony of Independence.

Orchestra Toronto

Orchestra Toronto's inaugural 1955 season got right to the point. It had, after all, only one concert. That concert, however, made such an impact that the dedicated 55-member company, then known as The Bennington Heights Community Orchestra, continued to perform until 1998, when it put its magical rings together and changed its name to Orchestra Toronto. The largest distinction between Orchestra Toronto and other ensembles: it's truly a community project, corralling volunteer musicians and a few paid professionals to make up its 90-member team and deliver everything from Mendelssohn symphonies to flamenco concerts.
