An afternoon of classics
The Fraser Valley Symphony begins its 30th anniversary season with a fall concert on Nov. 3, entitled “The Classics” featuring music by ever-popular Viennese composers W.A. Mozart and Franz Schubert.
Guest soloist will be pianist Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Langley music instructor, Jane Hayes, performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K 491.
Since her debut with the Toronto Symphony, Hayes’ concerts have taken her across Canada, the United States and Europe.
In addition to being director of keyboard studies at KPU in Langley, Hayes maintains a busy performing and adjudicating schedule.
Included in the program will be two works by Schubert, Overture in the Italian Style D 590 and Symphony No. 5 “The Little.” The overture captured the popularity of Italian music in Vienna in 1816, and the symphony, composed the same year, was strongly influenced by the music of Mozart, whom Schubert greatly admired.
The concert will take place at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford, Sunday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.
Admission: $16 adults; $13 seniors and students; $6 child 12 years and under.
Tickets available in advance at Act 1 Music in Langley, Kings Music and Tourism Abbotsford Visitor Centre (Abbotsford) and Claim to Fame (Mission).
