PEI Symphony Orchestra Presents: New Directions with Dina Gilbert*
In the third concert of the season, the PEI Symphony will be led by guest conductor Dina Gilbert. Gilbert conducts symphonies and chamber orchestras in Kamloops, Quebec City, and Montreal, and she’ll be leading the PEISO through Zoltán Kodály’s Dances of Galánta, Pierre Wissmer’s Symphony no.1, and Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite no.1. The concert will also feature this year’s winner of the Suzanne Brenton Award, violinist Judy Yun, performing Mozart’s violin concerto no.5.
A free Pre-Concert Talk will take place upstairs in Zion’s youth chapel before the show, where Gilbert and Yun will share with the audience some personal insights into the performance to follow.
