Concert Schedule and Programming


Concert #1: October 16th 2022: Redemption 

We open with a performance of Brahms’s Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, and, after much anticipation, soloist Justin Amador will at last be featured in Franz Strauss’s Horn Concerto in C Minor. Additionally the orchestra will perform NYC-based composer Jessie Montgomery’s Hymn for Everyone.

Concert #2: January 22nd 2023: Mahler’s Musings 

Our second concert centres on Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 5 (reduction by Yoon Jae Lee), paired with the lighthearted and colourful Baby-Serenade for Orchestra op. 24 by Erich Wolfgang Korngold.

Concert #3: March 5th 2023: Goodnight Moon 

PEI’s Karem J. Simon takes up the baton as the Guest Conductor at the March 5th concert, leading the 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.

Concert #4: April 16th 2023: Reflections 

The season concludes with April 16th’s performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 and star pianist Sarah Hagen performing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3!

What Happens if a Concert is Cancelled? 

In today’s world, we understand there is always a chance a concert could be cancelled as changes are made by our Chief Public Health Office. In the event a concert is cancelled and can’t be rescheduled, we’ll simply refund that concert’s portion of your subscription, so there is no financial risk to you, the ticket holder.

This year we are also celebrating Mark Shapiro’s tenth and final season as Music Director and Conductor of the PEI Symphony! Of this concert season he writes, “Over the past decade, I’ve felt exceptionally blessed to experience the warm embrace of PEI… even though I hail from that other country due south. My partnership with the PEISO has been as magical as it was improbable. I’ll forever treasure the memories of our many excellent adventures, and hold in my heart the names of PEISO players and community members no longer with us. My lasting gratitude goes to PEISO’s dedicated, hardworking Board and staff present and past.

Since 2012, whenever I’ve boarded a plane that was the first leg of my trek to Charlottetown, I’ve felt my spirit open and release. I’ll miss that feeling, and all that goes with it: my friends in the orchestra, the wonderful audience and community, PEI itself. Part of my heart will always be here, and I hope – I know – that, one way or another, my journey will carry me back here someday.”

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.
