CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI — The PEI Symphony Orchestra presents four in-person performances as part of its 55th concert season.

The orchestra’s 2022-23 season will begin with a performance of Brahm’s Symphony No. 1 in C minor on October 16 and, after much anticipation, soloist Justin Amador will be featured in the Horn Concerto in C minor by Franz Strauss.

The next concert will feature Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 5 on January 22, 2023, paired with Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s light and colorful Baby-Serenade for orchestra.

Karem J. Simon from PEI. will conduct a concert on March 5, 2023, leading the orchestra through works by Bizet, Beethoven, Champagne and more.

The concert will also feature singers Hannah O’Donnell and Jillian Clow performing a variety of classic operatic repertoire.

The season concludes with a performance on April 16, 2023 of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 and pianist Sarah Hagen performing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3.

The four concerts will take place on Sundays at 2:30 p.m. at the Mainstage Theater in the Confederation Center under the musical direction of Maestro Mark Shapiro.

The upcoming season marks Shapiro’s 10th and final season as conductor and music director of the PEI Symphony Orchestra.

“My partnership with PEISO has been as magical as it is unlikely,” Shapiro said.

“I will forever cherish the memories of our many great adventures and hold in my heart the names of the PEISO players and community members who are no longer with us.”

Season passes are available throughout August online, by calling 902-566-1267 or by visiting the Confederation Center box office at 130 Queen Street in Charlottetown.
