Event Description

This concert honours the extraordinary Canadian mezzo-soprano Maureen Forrester. An artist who achieved great acclaim, Forrester was a generous teacher whose legacy carries on through her many students. The program features a new work commissioned by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra by Howard Shore, Canada's acclaimed film composer most renowned for his scores for The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Also on the program is one of Forrester’s signature works, Gustav Mahler’s masterpiece, Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth), as well as Richard Wagner’s Rienzi Overture.

Israeli contralto Noa Frenkel and Victoria’s beloved tenor, Benjamin Butterfield will be guest soloists with the orchestra.

This concert is presented in partnership with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra in celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada and received financial assistance from the Government of Canada.
