A Night Of Beethoven

In addition to all the great music that will be played Saturday Sept. 20 (a triple shot of Beethoven, no less) there’s also an opportunity to get in a little noshing. That’s because the concert marks the opening night of the Regina Symphony Orchestra’s 105th season, and to celebrate there’s gala receptions before and after the show. The former features champagne and a meal, while the latter will offer up dessert.

As for the concert, the guest artist is pianist Angela Cheng, and the program will include Beethoven’s Overture to the Creatures of “Prometheus”; Piano Concerto No.5, “Emperor” and Symphony No.5.

The champagne starts flowing at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 20, and the concert will follow at 8 p.m. For ticket info visit the RSO website or call 306-586-9555. And to give you a sense of Cheng’s talent here’s video from 2013 of her playing a piece by Mendelssohn in Switzerland with Pinchas Zukerman (violin) and Amanda Forsyth (cello):
