Welcome to the Deep River Symphony Orchestra
This year is the DRSO’s 60th season. What an accomplishment that is for a small community orchestra! Sixty years of orchestral music does not just happen, and as we reflect on this milestone, we must thank all of those who have given of their time, talent, and treasure to provide our community with an orchestra. These individuals include music directors, players, board members, local music teachers who encourage their students to join the orchestra, and parents who support their children’s musical accomplishments. We also thank all of those private citizens who make donations and our corporate sponsors, as well as being grateful for the financial support of the Ontario Arts Council over the years. Finally, we sincerely thank all past and present audience members, for without you, there would be no orchestra. We hope that you will enjoy the upcoming season!
Our five concerts for the 2012-2013 begin in October with the return of David Jalbert on piano. In December, the Deep River Choral Group joins us for two performances of Handel’s Messiah, featuring solo performances by the now familiar voices of Rosalind Pickett (soprano), April Babey (mezzo soprano), Jean-Philippe Fortier-Lazure (tenor) and Gary Dahl (bass). In January, we invite you to join us for our traditional Baroque matinee. Our March concert includes works from two 20th Century Canadian composers, and our season finishes in May when we welcome back graduating university student, April Morris who will play for us on her violin.
We look forward to sharing music together in Childs Auditorium.
