Spend a leisurely afternoon listening to the sweet melodies of the Chamber Orchestra of Edmonton as it closes out its fourth season. The Chamber Orchestra of Edmonton adapted to the pandemic and played casual, socially distanced concerts in parks across the city over the summer.
“It has been really interesting and exciting for the musicians to play,” says Lidia Khaner, artistic director of Chamber Orchestra of Edmonton Society. “Everyone’s spirits have been raised because we can play together again, and the orchestra has been sounding wonderful.”
Pipe Dreams is the third and final concert of the Season of Hope series and features the principal flute of The Philadelphia Orchestra, Jeffrey Khaner, who will play Australian composer Karl Vine’s music. The orchestra will also play music from Frank Bridge and Nino Rota, who is known for his composition in The Godfather.
“The soloist we’re going to have is a top-class musician,” says Khaner. “He’s really one that you definitely want to come and listen to.”
The Chamber Orchestra of Edmonton Season of Hope Pipe Dreams concert will take over Louise McKinney Park on September 12 at 3 p.m. Tickets are free and are available online.
