THE CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETYOF MISSISSAUGA PRESENTSTHE 2011-12 SEASONMozart& MoreGREAT HALL SERIESSaturday, November 5, 2011 • 8 PMThe Mississauga SymphonyThe first concert of CMSM’s 14thseason features principal string playersof the Mississauga SymphonyOrchestra performing with flutist andpiccolo player Les Allt a program ofMozart, Roussel, Kevin Lau, Beethoven,and McCauley.Saturday, February 25, 2012 • 8 PMThe Seraphine Piano TrioHear the angelic sounds of thisaccomplished trio, formed in the Fall of2010. The program is sure to inspireand will include Mozart (Quartet in Emajor, K52), "Dvorak Dumky" Trio, andSchubert (Trio in Eb major, D 929).Saturday, April 14, 2012 • 8 PMThe Afiara String QuartetFeaturing young Mississauga cellistAdrian Fung, the program willinclude Mozart (String Quartet K. 465“Dissonance”), Brett Abigana (StringQuartet No. 2) and Mendelssohn (StringQuartet No. 2, Op. 13).to town to direct. (He will, as others before him, be astonishedby the depth of musical talent in this town.) If you are going, getthere 45 minutes ahead for Aitken’s “Illuminating Introduction.”Aitken is as deeply into the music as his interviewees and it makesfor fascinating listening. There’s also a new piece by Eric Morinon the programme, matching Joseph Petric on accordion with thePenderecki String Quartet — that’s three accordionists in two concertsthis season already for NMC! And those of you who also takein the Women’s Musical Club concert on October 16 will have an alltoo rare opportunity — the chance to hear a new work (Chris PaulHarman’s Duo for flute and cello) performed twice in four days!MASSBRASSBetty Oliphant Theatre, 8pm Oct 30, will be the place to hear thedrums go bang and the cymbals clang. But for the horns that blazeaway, Koerner Hall, five hours earlier, is the place to be. MassBrasspromises to be one of those Soundstreams initiatives that LawrenceCherney is famous for — throwing together players who’d otherwisebe more likely to cross paths in an airport, adding a conductor whoresponds to what he hears, and watching the sparks fly. Copland,Schafer, and works by André Ristic (world premiere), Gabrieli andmore will be the ingredients. The Stockholm Chamber Brass, SimónBolivar Brass Quintet, and True North Brass will provide the heat.And conductor David Fallis will stir the pot.ESPRIT’S STIRRED SO MUCHSpeaking of Koerner Hall, AlexPauk’s Esprit Orchestra was the firstof the core new music presenters tomove its whole season to Koerner.Having an extra 400 seats to sellwas a daunting challenge, but withcuriosity about the new hall high lastseason it was a good time to take theplunge. After all, without extra seatshow do you take on the challenge ofoutreach? This year they are takingit a step further, switching from aSunday night format to include threeweek nights, making reaching out toa school audience viable.Shauna Rolston.First of these week nights is Wednesday October 19 and it’s astirring programme, as befits a band big enough to make somecomplex noise in a hall big enough to handle it. Douglas Schmidt’snew work on the programme “The Devil’s Sweat” caught my eye:“Carbon Concerto for carbon cello and orchestra” it says. Solo cellistShauna Rolston’s carbon fibre cello is billed as “indestructible” so itsounds like she’s in for an unorthodox workout!COURTESY OF THE BANFF CENTRETHE GREAT HALLUnitarian Congregation of Mississauga84 South Service Rd.
