Sneak Peek Presents: Symphonic Tales

The Sneak Peek Orchestra is back for a fun-filled evening of Symphonic Tales for the whole family! After our incredibly successful and spooky Halloween concert we are excited to bring you a fun and exciting programme of orchestral escapades. On Friday April 19th, 7:30 pm, get ready for adventure!

Lead by Conductor Victor Cheng, we’ll begin with Jared Miller’s 2010 Traffic Jam, written for the Vancouver Olympics and the inevitable chaos that surrounded them. Next, we will be joined by actor J. Adam Brown, who will narrate Prokofiev’s famous tale, Peter and the Wolf. This classic story also features some fantastic orchestral soloists portraying the bird, the cat, the duck, the grandfather, Peter, and the wolf!

Our audience is also sure to enjoy Kevin Lau’s Gooby Suite, a piece based on his score for the 2009 Canadian children’s film, “Gooby,” (co-composed with Ronald Royer), about a lovable teddy bear that comes to life. Finally, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is a symphonic suite based on the celebrated story One Thousand and One Nights, and features our concertmaster Tanya Charles as the title legendary Persian Queen weaving her tale.

The concert will take place at St. Gabriel’s Passionist Parish (670 Sheppard Ave. East, near Bessarion Subway Station). Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 students. Click here to purchase tickets!
