Following the baton-waving of guest conductor Pratik Gandhi from the Greater Toronto Philharmonic Orchestra, Symphony on the Bay bids adieu to the spring season and celebrates the long days of summer. Pachelbel's immortal Canon begins the afternoon with gently building melodies that evoke wedding ceremonies for eloping salt and pepper shakers. Next, Mendelssohn's Concert Piece no. 2 in D minor opens with a tumultuous duel between clarinetists Frances Cohen and Zoltan Kalman of Niagara Symphony before resolving into a winding knot of wind solos. The evening fittingly concludes with the orchestra's performance of Haydn's melancholy Symphony no. 45 in F-sharp Minor, an expressive example of the Sturm und Drang style known colloquially as the Farewell Symphony.
