2018/19: Playing for Passion!

Welcome to the PSO’s 52nd Season! 

This year, you’ll see and hear a bigger, bolder season from the PSO. We are continuing to build on the high quality concert seasons we have presented since our 50th anniversary year and are taking an extra leap forward into 2018/19.

Our passion is finding new and better ways to connect with you. In 2018/19, we are presenting robust concerts rich with emotion and stories, featuring world-class Canadian guest artists such as Michael Kim and Stéphane Tétreault on stage with the fine musicians of the PSO. The music will include Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, Vaughan Williams’ Symphony no. 3 “Pastoral”, and Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique. All five PSO Main Series Concerts will take place at Showplace Performance Centre – We heard you and worked diligently with our home venue to ensure the most comfortable concert experience possible.

In 2018/19, we’re playing for passion at the PSO. Please join me and your musicians as we present a powerful new season that will take us all to new heights.
