September 29, 2018 – Famous Overtures & Great Performers. Overture, curtain, lights! Some of the best music for orchestra was written as a Prelude to extended works. The Brantford Symphony Orchestra presents a selection of those favourites, from the worlds of opera, operetta, ballet, oratorio, musicals, and the concert hall. You’ll hear Overtures such as “William Tell”, “Swan Lake”, “La Forza del Destino”, “Messiah” and more! Between these masterpieces, Brantford’s most talented young soloists will perform with the orchestra. This grand feast of spectacular music can end only with the grandest Overture of them all, Tchaikovsky’s iconic “1812” Overture. A big orchestra playing big music on the big stage of the Sanderson Centre will definitely make this a night of nights!
