Event Description

The Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Yariv Aloni, Music Director, presents a diverse and exciting musical program to help area residents launch their 2019 summer activities. Winds of Summer brings together Mendelssohn’s Overture, The Hebrides, Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for four wind soloists, and Schubert’s Symphony No 4.

Two performances are scheduled; one on Saturday June 15, 7:30 pm at the Sooke Community Hall, 2037 Shields Road and Sunday June 16, 7:30 pm at St. Mary of the Incarnation Church 4125 Metchosin Road.

Felix Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides (Fingal’s Cave) was inspired by the composer’s excursion in 1829 to the Scottish Hebrides islands, famous for basalt sea caves. The work includes musical themes that suggest the stunning beauty of sea caves, feelings of the area’s remoteness, solitude and the power of crashing waves.

The Sinfonia Concertante K 297b will showcase the musical skills of four soloists — all members of the Sooke Philharmonic — Jacquelin Kereluk, Oboe; Don Mayer, Clarinet; George Kereluk, Bassoon; and David Watson, Horn.

Franz Schubert completed his Symphony No.4 in 1816, when he was 19 years old. However, it was not publicly performed until 1849, many years after his death in 1828. The work is called the Tragic Symphony, possibly because the first movement delivers a spirit of sorrow and resignation. This tragic theme is not maintained however, in later movements which include more animated and entrancing melodies.

The Winds of Summer concert offers Sooke and West Shore residents the exceptional opportunity to experience live classical music in their “own backyard”.

The SPO offers FREE concert admission to youth and children under 18, making attendance a unique and affordable family outing. Hearing first hand great music from the past centuries, played with skill and obvious joy, encourages young people to expand their musical interests and to begin a life-long appreciation of the classics.

Otherwise, ticket prices are $20 seniors and $25 adults. Concert tickets may be purchased on line at SookePhil.ca, at the door or at the following locations: in Sooke at the Little Vienna Bakery, Shoppers Drug Mart and South Shore Gallery and in Westshore at the Royal Bay Bakery and Shoppers Drug Mart in Westshore Town Center.
