A Message From Our Artistic Director

A Message From Our Artistic Director

Dear friends of music and loyal audience of your Sudbury Symphony Orchestra,

It is hard to put into words the joy that fills our heart as we write to you today to announce our return to the stage this fall. We have been looking forward to this moment since March, and have adapted ourselves to the public health guidelines to offer you this concert in collaboration with our precious production partner Sudbury Indie Cinema on October 24th

I will be there to welcome you, and we are looking forward to sharing this beautiful moment in music with you.

Full details on this concert can be found here.

Further strengthening our partnership, Sudbury Indie Cinema will also be presenting the Northern Ontario premier of a musical double bill, with the 2020 films Crescendo and God of the Piano as a fundraiser for Sudbury Symphony Orchestra.

Crescendo focuses on a world-famous conductor who accepts the job to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra and is quickly drawn into a tempest of sheer unsolvable problems. While God of the Piano focuses on a woman who, having never been able to reach her father’s musical standards, rests her hopes on the child she’s about to have. When the baby is born deaf, Anat succumbs to extreme measures to keep the dream alive.

These films will be presented on Thursday, October 1st at 5:00 and 7:30 pm.  Full details can be found here.

Stay tuned for other activities to come. May the music sound at last!

Stay safe and healthy,

Mélanie Léonard
