Halifax’s own Denise Djokic is one of the top “25 Canadians Who Are Changing Our World” (Maclean’s) and one of “Canada’s Most Powerful Women” (ELLE). Her spectacular career has included a performance at the Grammy Awards, a top-15 spot on Billboard’s classical charts, and rave reviews for her “arrestingly beautiful tone colour” (The Strad) and “hugely impressive technique” (BBC Music). Now, this famous classical music star returns home to Symphony Nova Scotia for a rare performance of Shostakovich’s passionate, deeply moving Cello Concerto No. 1.
