PEI’s own Karem J. Simon takes up the baton as the Guest Conductor, leading the PEI Symphony Orchestra through works by Bizet, Beethoven, Champagne, and more. The concert will also feature vocalists Hannah O'Donnell and Jillian Clow performing a variety of classic operatic repertoire.
This year marks the PEISO’s 55th concert season, taking place entirely at Confederation Centre of the Arts. In 1967, the PEI Symphony Orchestra was established to present high quality, live orchestral music to audiences here in Prince Edward Island, to provide practical training for young PEI students to learn and perform orchestral music, and to provide gifted Island musicians an opportunity to perform with a large orchestra.
Each year, the orchestra’s four-concert season features a mix of cherished classical repertoire and daring new works by acclaimed modern composers. World-class soloists from across the continent are often featured as well as promising young talent from within the region, and pops concerts have featured the likes of David Myles, Tara MacLean, Paper Lions, Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, and many more.
A season subscription grants patrons access to the best seating at the best price for all four concerts and includes additional perks throughout the year. Visit www.peisymphony.com for more information on all PEISO concerts and activities.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
