New York-born violinist Jeanne Lamon will be joining the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra this week to direct a period performance featuring works from Bach, Mozart, Corelli and Haydn.
Lamon is the music director of Toronto’s world-renowned Tafelmusik instrument orchestra and will direct the WSO January 16-17.
She has been praised by critics in Europe and North America for her strong musical leadership, has won numerous awards and was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 2000 and in 2014 was appointed to the Order of Ontario.
Those attending the concert will see and hear the orchestra in a new light as they collaborate closely with one another in the baroque style.
The two-night program will also include Bach’s Symphony in G minor.
Tickets start at $25 and are available through the WSO box office at (204) 949-3999, WSO.ca and Ticketmaster. Soundcheck tickets start at $15 and are available at the WSO box office.
