Kingston Symphony – Saint-Saëns & Bizet

Kingston Symphony presents an afternoon of music by artists who were fierce in spirit.

Ethel Smyth was a devoted champion of women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom, and that movement’s anthem is featured front and centre in her Overture to The Boatswain’s Mate. Award-winning cellist Bryan Cheng joins us to perform Saint-Saens’ Cello Concerto No. 2, playing on the very same Stradivari cello which was used to premiere the work in 1905.

The show will finish with a brilliant work from a young genius, Bizet’s sparkling Symphony in C, a melodious testament to his extraordinary talents.

Tickets are $16.95-$45.20.
