This third concert of the 2018 - 2019 season will offer musical favourites to treat the love of your life! You'll enjoy "For Home" by Kevin Lau, "Vocalise" by Rachmaninoff and the famous Irish Tune from County Derry (Danny Boy) in a wonderful arrangement by Percy Grainger. The first half of the concert is completed by Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, a most romantic symphony indeed. The second movement "Allegretto" evokes in the listener feelings of longing and tenderness. It received an instant encore when it was first performed in 1813 and still does today! It took Tchaikovsky 10 years to write "Romeo and Juliet" and its main love theme is so recognizable. It has been used in many TV shows and movies. The third concert of our 2018 – 2019 season, Immortal Beloved takes place on Sunday, February 10th at 2:30 pm at the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
