Consortium Aurora Borealis is thrilled to open its 44th season on Saturday, September 10 at Trinity United Church, Thunder Bay with “Romantic Gestures”, an in-person concert celebrating Scandinavia. Violinist Jeremy Bell returns, joined by pianist Shoshana Telner, to perform Violin Sonata No. 2 in G major, Op. 13 by the Norwegian composer Grieg, as well as a sonata movement by Swedish Stenhammar.
As a nod to Thunder Bay’s Finnish population, a suite for piano, Op. 75 “The Trees” by Sibelius is included, in which his love for nature is expressed. The concert switches gears to conclude with an exquisite Italian Romantic violin sonata by Respighi. Catch the excitement as our distinguished guest artists wow you with their virtuosic performance.
Tickets at the door are $25, $15 for students, and children under 12 are admitted free. Also available online.
