On the program

Jocelyn Morlock: My Name is Amanda Todd
Béla Bartók: Violin Concerto No. 2
Dvořák: Slavonic Dances, Op. 46

Dvořák was the Czechs’ musical champion, and his spirited, fiery Slavonic Dances made him an international star. Experience their enchanting colours and irresistible warmth in Symphony Nova Scotia’s first-ever performance of this exuberant tour de force. Plus, 21-year-old violin prodigy Kerson Leong joins the orchestra for Bartók’s expansive, inventive Violin Concerto, one of the most demanding violin works in the repertoire – and Symphony Nova Scotia presents its first-ever performance of My Name Is Amanda Todd, a moving, poignant work that won the 2018 JUNO for Best Classical Composition of the Year.
