Vivaldi to Vienna to Beijing
The CCSA Symphony Orchestra returns to the Toronto stage after a spectacular appearance in Beijing, performing at the invitation of the Chinese government in the May 2019 International “Meet in Beijing Festival”.
The Toronto 2020 Spring Gala Concert is one of a series celebrating classical music in both Western and Chinese traditions. Earlier concerts were performed to sold out audiences in Toronto’s George Weston Recital Hall and Koerner Hall. This evening features Angel Wang, violinist, the CCSA’s founder and principal artist. In China Angel was a member of the Tianjin Symphony Orchestra and established the “Angel Trio”, performing chamber music throughout the country. In Canada she is a veteran of both stage and screen, most recently the Concert Master for three of Richard Clayderman’s North American tours. Angel is a faculty member at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.
Angel is joined this evening by the CCSA orchestra, conductor Claudio Vena, tenor Adam Luther, and a talented young artist in an elegant evening of waltzes to celebrate the end of winter and awakening of spring in Western and Chinese cultures.
