TBSO: A Night to Remember in support of United Way
Thanks to the generous community partnership of the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra, friends and supporters of United Way of Thunder Bay are invited to come together for a very special night of music, remembrance and support for community.
Memory is one of life’s strongest and most powerful forces. Join us for an emotional evening of truly fine music inspired by the act of keeping memories close.
One of the featured pieces to be performed is Canadian composer Ryan Trew’s “Come Closer” — a stunning, heart-rending song cycle, created for soprano Rachel Krehm to cherish the memory of her late sister Elizabeth by setting Elizabeth’s personal and striking poetry to music. Elizabeth’s emotional words share insights from the beautiful imagination of a child, to the hope of what life beyond death may bring.
Myroslav Skoryk’s haunting “Melody” marks a defining moment in Ukraine’s artistic history, standing against oppression. The concert concludes with an unquestionable masterwork, Louise Farrenc’s magnificent Third Symphony, a reminder of an until-recently forgotten Maestra who rightfully belongs in the same league as the celebrated symphonic titans.
