The second concert of the PEI Symphony’s 2021-22 season features Principal Trombonist, Dale Sorensen, joining the orchestra for the rollicking, seldom played Trombone Concerto by beloved Italian film composer Nino Rota, framed appealingly with two blockbuster works by Dvorák, each celebrating the reemergence of the PEISO as a full symphony orchestra, nearly two years since their last full-scale concert.
PEI trombonist Dale Sorensen is a versatile musician with extensive experience in classical, popular, and musical theatre genres. A frequent soloist, Dale is passionate about commissioning new music and has recorded an all-Canadian CD of music for trombone. As an orchestral musician, Dale performs regularly with the PEISO, the Charlottetown Festival Orchestra, and Symphony Nova Scotia, and has held orchestral positions and/or freelanced throughout southwestern Ontario, in Winnipeg, and as far away as Japan. A dedicated educator, Dale has taught at universities in five Canadian provinces, teaches privately, and serves as an adjudicator and clinician at music festivals and workshops throughout the Maritimes and Ontario. He is currently Assistant Professor of Brass at UPEI and a proud Yamaha Artist.
Under the direction of Maestro Mark Shapiro, this year marks the PEISO’s 54th season, chock-full of thrilling masterworks and world-class guest performers, taking place entirely at the Confederation Centre of the Arts Mainstage Theatre. Season Subscriptions gain concertgoers access to the lowest available pricing, invites and discounts to special events, and guaranteed seating should a show sell out.
