Classical concert kicks off Fraser Valley Symphony’s season

The symphony features two Maple Ridge musicians: Leanne Drewlo on violin and Susannah Blary on horn.

Guest soloist will be pianist Jane Hayes

The Fraser Valley Symphony begins its 30th anniversary season with “The Classics,” a concert featuring music by ever-popular Viennese composers W.A. Mozart and Franz Schubert.

The symphony features two Maple Ridge musicians: Leanne Drewlo on violin and Susannah Blary on horn.

Guest soloist will be pianist Jane Hayes, performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K 491. Since her debut with the Toronto Symphony, Hayes’ concerts have taken her across Canada, the United States and Europe.

Included in the program will be two works by Schubert, Overture in the Italian Style D 590 and Symphony No. 5 “The Little.” The overture captured the popularity of Italian music in Vienna in 1816, and the symphony, composed the same year, was strongly influenced by the music of Mozart, whom Schubert greatly admired.

The concert takes place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3 at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford. Tickets will be sold at the door.
