Superstar pianist Emanuel Ax joins the NAC Orchestra for a youthful work: One of Mozart’s early masterpieces—a dramatic, emotionally rich concerto with a cornucopia of beautiful themes plus a lively finale. Maestro Zukerman conducts Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and Malcolm Forsyth’s final composition—a moving choral tribute to our homeland and “a testament to a family’s love for music and for each other.” (Edmonton Journal)
Pre-concert music, 7pm: The Ewashko Singers with conductor Duain Wolfe.
