The Music And Dance Of Paris, France

Featuring Harpist Cécile Denis and A Pre-Concert Talk by Artist-In-Residence Catherine Manoukian

Toronto — On Sunday December 9, Orchestra Toronto will showcase Paris, France in an exciting orchestral concert, featuring dancers from Opera Atelier and Cécile Denis on harp. Orchestra Toronto is combining music and dance to highlight its season’s theme, Dance Capitals of the World. The December 9 concert is the second concert of the season with further concerts planned to showcase Madrid, London and St. Petersburg with various dance companies at each concert.

"Having dancers on the stage as the musicians perform is adding a whole new dimension to our performances," says Orchestra Toronto’s music director Errol Gay. "Not only is it a visual treat for the audience, but it also creates a synergy for the musicians that takes the concert to a whole new level."

The concert program will feature pieces from Mozart, Boildieu, Wagner, Gluck and Saint-Saëns. The Opera Atelier dancers will perform to Gluck’s Ballet Suite #2. A free pre-concert talk by Artist-in-Residence Catherine Manoukian will take place at 2:15 pm and the concert will begin at 3 pm.

All Orchestra Toronto’s performances are held at the acoustically superb George Weston Recital Hall of the Toronto Centre for the Arts where it is a Company in Residence at 5040 Yonge Street. The Toronto Centre for the Arts is the only major theatre complex north of Bloor Street and is easily accessible by car, by public transportation and for wheelchairs.
