quinte symphony EVENTS
We are approaching our 60th anniversary with an exciting season of beautiful music! This year, as we continue to collaborate with old friends and new, we bring orchestral music for all ages to the community. Our season-opener featured the exotic Concerto for Bassoon, String Orchestra and Marimba by Kingston composer, Marjan Mozetich. In November, we joined forces once again for our 4th Tribute to the Brave with the 8 Wing Concert Band and Pipes and Drums. In December we reunite with the Belleville Choral Society to perfrom Handel’s glorious Messiah! Pianist Luke Bell, a Belleville native, returns in March to perform Greig’s Piano Concerto in A minor with us in Music from the North. ! We end the season on a high note as Quinte Symphony and Orchestra Kingston combine to present Grand Finale! in May.
Under the inspiring leadership of Maestro Dan Tremblay, Quinte Symphony continues to thrill local audiences and perform “the music you love…played by the people you know.”
Meet our soloists for Handel’s Messiah- Sunday, December 9, 2018 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM at Bridge St. Church.
Hard to believe! It was 20 years ago, almost to the day, that Quinte Symphony (known then as the Eastern Ontario Concert Orchestra) performed Handel’s Messiah with the Belleville Choral Society. What better setting for this Handel’s glorious oratorio than the historic Bridge St. Church!
The Quinte Symphony’s performance of Handel’s Messiah with the Belleville Choral Society is supported by Quinte Broadcasting company and the City of Belleville.
