In 1817, the 20 year old Franz Schubert wrote a song for voice and piano about a fish. Two years later, he created a set of variations from this delightful theme which became the 4th movement of his immortal quintet nicknamed “The Trout”. Four friends and colleagues from the KW Symphony strings section joined by Catherine Robertson on piano bring you this loved work.
Every two years, orchestra@uwaterloo holds a Concerto and Aria Competition that is open to University of Waterloo students and recent graduates, and is judged by a panel of professional musicians. Winners perform as soloists with the orchestra in a public concert. On Saturday, January 27th the actual competition takes place. The evening competition is open to the public. Three to four finalists will perform in front of a jury to win the honour of playing a solo with the orchestra@uwaterloo. Contestants include pianists, strings, and woodwind performers, as well as voice students.
We welcome family and friends to celebrate with graduates from Conrad Grebel University College and the University of Waterloo on Sunday, April 15, 2018, 2:00 p.m. in the Humanities Theatre on the University of Waterloo campus.
