Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture
Elgar Enigma Variations
Elgar Pmp and Circumstance No.5
Welcome to the 36th Season of the Fraser Valley Symphony! We open with some of Elgar's best loved music: Highlights from the Enigma Variation, a Pomp and Circumstance March, and the evocative Sea Pictures, featuring the talents of the prominent Vancouver mezzo-soprano, Melanie Adams. A perfect companion to those Sea Pictures is another vivid work about the English oast: Medelssohn's Hebrides Overture.

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20, K.466, mvt. 3 Performed by Braden Eguia
Beethoven's glorious Seventh, perhaps the most uplifting of his symphonies, captivates audiences with both its drama and dance-like motifs. What better way to warm up on a winter afternoon! Joining us will be the winners of our Young Artist Solo Competition, Annis Lee and Braden Eguia, who bring their incredibly dynamic and inspired performances to the FVS stage.

Rossini Barber of Seville Overture
Mendelssohn Symphony No. 5
This afternoon has classics to please everyone, whether you are a fan of this Favourite Rossini overture, love the beauty, transparency and effervescence of Mendelssohn's orchestrations, or are awaiting the showcase of violin pyrotechnics. Canadian violinist David Gillham presents two virtuosic showpieces, the "Faust Fantasy" and the Czardas, both of which exude rhapsody, dramam and fireworks!

Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2
Borodin In the Steppes of Central Asia
Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture
Rich, romantic, exotic and dramatic are adjectives that spring to mind for the Russian gems! The Borodin will transport you to exotic places as you travel the caravans' dusty, bumpy routes. The Tchaikovsky will touch your soul with the tumult and tragic love of Romeo and Juliet, and the Rachmaninoff will take your breath away with the sheer grandeur and power of the music, performed by our longtime friend and collaborator, pianist Jane Hayes.
