Symphony Nova Scotia’s October 29 concert with pianist Leonie Rettig rescheduled for March 10

Halifax, NS – Due to a sudden power outage in South End Halifax on the evening of October 29, Symphony Nova Scotia was forced to postpone its “Masterpieces by Beethoven and Ravel” concert with German pianist Leonie Rettig.

The nearly sold-out concert has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax.

Symphony and Dalhousie Arts Centre staff are currently notifying all audience members of the new date by phone and e-mail, and tickets for the original October 29 concert will be honoured on the new date.

“We were very disappointed to have to cancel the concert on such short notice,” says Symphony Nova Scotia CEO Chris Wilkinson.

“We’re very grateful to our audience members for their patience and support, and we look forward to welcoming them back again in March.”

The March concert will feature an identical program to the cancelled October 29 performance, and acclaimed German pianist Leonie Rettig will return to perform Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G with the orchestra and Maestro Bernhard Gueller. Limited tickets are still available.

The full concert program includes:

  • Chan Ka Nin (1949- ): Ecstasy
  • Maurice Ravel (1875-1937): Piano Concerto in G Major
  • Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827): Symphony no. 2 in D Major

Audience members with questions are encouraged to contact the Symphony Nova Scotia office at 902.421.1300 or [email protected], or the Dalhousie Arts Centre Box Office at 902.494.3820 (open 12-6 pm weekdays). Updates will also be posted to Symphony Nova Scotia’s website at
