The Hart House Orchestra is celebrating its 40th anniversary and Canada’s sesquicentennial with its first concert in New York City. The planned program, with Canadian and American symphonic pieces to honor both countries, is complemented by Brahms Symphony No. 1. The Playbill details of the concert can be viewed here.

Reflecting the great diversity of the University of Toronto community, the orchestra knits together talented musicians across all disciplines and professions through the joy of performing challenging symphonic works in an ambitious program of four distinctive concerts annually. The orchestra’s ethos is captured well by “Music should be a live thing that communicates between live people, and in that way there is absolutely nothing like it” (Sir Simon Rattle).
