PEISO 2021-22 Season Subscriptions

During last year’s COVID-19 outbreak and associated restrictions, the 65+ member orchestra pivoted to chamber music events in place of symphonic concerts and forewent the sale of season subscriptions.

This year, season subscriptions are again being made available at a rate of $130 per adult or $40 per student/youth. Benefits to a subscription include the lowest pricing, the earliest seat selection at concerts, and invites to members-only events. 

$130 Adult / $40 Youth
2021-2022 Season

Now in its 54th year of operation, the Prince Edward Island Symphony Orchestra (PEISO) returns to presenting orchestral performances this 2021-22 season, with four unique concerts taking place at the Confederation Centre’s Mainstage Theatre, under the direction of Maestro Mark Shapiro.

October 17th’s opening concert will feature a programme of strings, with the addition of guest soloist and past PEISO Music Director, Dr. James Mark, clarinet. Works by Elgar, Respighi, Copland, Coleridge-Taylor, Piazzolla, and Mendelssohn will be performed.

On November 21st, Antonín Dvorák’s New World Symphony is the major work, along with his Carnival Overture. Additionally, Dale Sorensen will be featured on Nino Rota’s Trombone Concerto.

Guest Conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser takes up the baton at March 6th’s concert, leading the orchestra through works by Franz Strauss, Felix Mendelssohn, Charles Gounod, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Halifax-based composer Dinuk Wijeratne.

Finally, April 24th’s season finale will be titled Ode to Earth, as the orchestra pays tribute to Earth Day. The programme includes Beethoven’s popular Symphony no. 9 as well as Darius Milhaud’s “La création du monde” and Indigenous Composer Andrew Balfour’s Kiwetin-acahkos (North Star).

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.
