Alegria: a classical music concert in Toronto to celebrate Romania’s national day (December 1, 2018)
“The sacred mission of music is to bring souls together” George Enescu
On December 1st, Enescu’s dearly loved “Romanian Rhapsodies” will delight the audience of the Isabel Bader Theatre, in an exceptional concert by Kindred Spirits Orchestra.
We are proud to partner up with KSO conducted by Kristian Alexander, for this concert that also features Béla Bartók’s “Romanian Folk Dances”, Antonio Vivaldi’s famous Violin Concerto No. 4 “Winter”, Edvard Grieg’s thrilling “Piano Concerto”, and Nicolae Kirculescu’s impassioned “Musical moment” for piano and orchestra.
