La Scena Musicale
10th Anniversary Benefit Gala
In tribute to the composer's 250th anniversary, Mozart will figure prominantly in the second half devoted to works for solo and orchestra. Conductor Joseph Milo leads the Montreal Musicians of the World Symphony Orchestra, a group founded earlier in 2006 to provide immigrant musicians performing opportunities, in Mozart's Symphony # 41 and the overture to The Marriage of Figaro.
Pianist Ludwig Sémerjian Mozart's Concert Rondo in A major in memory of his teacher Charles Reiner, while soprano Nathalie Paulin performs "Dove Sono" from The Marriage of Figaro. Violinist Anne Robert will join the MMWSO in favourites by Tchaikovsky, Raff, Kreisler and Brahms, cellist Velitchka Votcheva performs Bruch's Kol Nidrei and the evening concludes with pianist Wonny Song's rendition of the finale from Beethoven's Piano Concerto # 3.
