Inside the Orchestra: Celestial Sounds

Presented by: Ottawa Symphony Orchestra

Sunday, March 18, 2018 at 1 pm

Have you ever wondered what it is like to see into the inner workings of an orchestra?

How all those violinists manage to move their bows at the same time with the same intensity?

And how all the winds and brass manage to play together from different parts of the stage?

Alain Trudel will lead the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra through a public rehearsal of selections from the following program:
  • J. Évangelista, O Java
  • S. Barber, Cello concerto op. 22
  • R. Strauss, Also sprach Zarathustra op. 30 / R. Strauss, Also sprach Zarathustra (Ainsi parlait Zarathustra) op. 30

Watch Trudel's artistic vision come to life as he discusses the historical context and musical style of this repertoire all whilst balancing the sounds of one hundred passionate musicians. Families welcome!
