Brahms’ monumental Symphony No. 4 is a moving, emotional masterpiece, beloved for its deep intensity, majestic grandeur, and compelling, lyrical beauty. Now, for the first time in a decade, Maestro Gueller leads Symphony Nova Scotia’s expanded orchestra in a rich, contemplative performance of this great work.

Plus, hear Mahler’s poignant Songs of a Wayfarer, sung by acclaimed Canadian soprano Andrea Ludwig, and Beethoven’s Leonore Overture – a dramatic, powerful work that’s been a popular favourite since its creation.

Symphony Nova Scotia regrets that its 2017/18 concert lineup will no longer feature RAM Koor, the Estonian National Male Choir. The choir’s planned 2017 Canadian tour has unfortunately been cancelled, due to an unexpected reduction in the Estonian Government’s financial support for international touring.

Ticket buyers have the option to attend the newly-programmed concert, exchange their tickets for the concert of their choice, or receive a full refund. Anyone who wishes to exchange or refund their tickets should contact the Dalhousie Arts Centre Box Office at 902.494.3820 as soon as possible.
