About this Event

In honour of November 11th, join Symphony 21 for our program of 'Lost Voices'; composers and works forever linked to the loss of war.

BUTTERWORTH: On the banks of green willow

RAVEL: Le tombeau de couperin

SCHREKER: Kammersymphonie (Chamber Symphony)

The Western Canadian premiere of this gorgeous work by once prominent German composer Franz Schreker. As an Austro-German Jew in the early 20th Century, he was systematically pushed out of his academic and professional positions before passing away as an ignored patient in Berlin. His music was lost during WWII for his faith.

Join us early for a showing of 'The lady in number 6'. This 2013 OSCAR winning film outlines the life of 109 year old pianist Alice Herz Sommers, and her experiences as a musician during the Holocaust.

Founded and led by conductor and composer Jaelem Bhate, recently named to CBC's 2019 '30 under 30 hot classical musicians', Symphony 21 produces concerts in unexpected places, where every concert is pay what you can.

Roy Barnett Hall

Doors at 6:50pm

Showing of 'The lady in number 6' at 7:10pm (38' run time)

Concert at 8pm

Admission is pay what you can. We rely on your generous donations to continue operating, and while we suggest a contribution of $25 per guest, we are equally as cool with $5, or $50! We accept cash and credit at the door, or you can purchase advance donations online to avoid the lines.

"Symphony 21, created by a millennial conductor who believes both in the innovation of the digital age as well as the timeless human beauty of orchestral music, seeks to address these issues, not by reinventing the wheel, but by removing that wheel from the wagon and attaching it to an electric hybrid vehicle."
