Earth Day: Rediscovering Spring

20 April 2023 - 7:30 pm Thunder Bay Community Auditorium



Spring has long been associated with rebirth and revitalization, but with the current environment of our world, we must also consider reflection. Canadian composer Dinuk Wijeratne’s HymnPeace causes us to examine our place in social history, Brahms’s choral masterpiece “Schicksalslied” encourages the idea of seizing our destiny in the here and now, and Florence Price’s Symphony No. 1 highlights and celebrates innovation and inspiration. This concert is a thoughtful and joyful exploration of modern and traditional classical music in our changing world.

Johannes Brahms: Schicksalslied
Paul Haas: Turning In
Dinuk Wijeratne: HymnPeace Orchestral Remix 
Florence Price: Symphony No. 1 in E minor 

There will be a pre-concert talk preceding the show with TBSO Music Director Paul Haas: 6:45pm on the TBCA mezzanine.
