SURREY â€” This one’s for you, mom.
Performers with Surrey Symphony Society are tuned up for a special "Spring Celebration" concert, set for 7 p.m. Sunday, May 10 at Chandos Pattison Auditorium.
The evening event promises a Mother’s Day vibe, featuring "orchestral delights" performed by Surrey Youth Orchestra, Intermediate Orchestra and Junior Strings, all under the Surrey Symphony Society banner.
Close to 120 musicians will take the stage at the theatre, located at 10238 168th St., in the Fraser Heights area of Surrey.
Under the direction of Joel Stobbe, Ben Goheen and Andrea Taylor, the three youth orchestras will perform "a fresh bouquet of music composed by fashionable composers throughout the centuries," according to event planners.
"The sounds of Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Grieg and Dvorak will provide an evening of favourite orchestral repertoire guaranteed to satisfy the musical tastes of the entire family."
Violinist Felicia Tsai, winner of this year’s annual Concerto Competition, will be featured in "Symphonie Espagnole in D minor, Op. 21" by Edouard Lalo, and Antoine Dvorak’s "Symphony No. 8" will conclude the concert.
The symphony society, now in its 39th year, will present nine scholarships at the event.
Tickets for the concert ($18 for adults and $12 for youth/seniors) are available at the door, or reserve tickets by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more event details, visit Surreysymphony.com.
