  • String Orchestra set for first performance of the season

    The Brock University String Orchestra is set to open the season with their performance Simply Strings on Wednesday, Nov. 28 in Cairns Recital Hall of the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.

    Although this is only the Orchestra’s second season, conductor George Cleland believes that it will continue to grow and flourish.

    “I am honoured to be a part of such an exciting new program for Brock. This is only our second year and it has been wonderful to experience the growth of the orchestra,” he said. “The dedication and commitment of the students and community players come through at every rehearsal.”

    The audience can look forward to pieces by Mozart, Warlock, Sibelius and Britten.

    Simply Strings will take place on Nov. 28 at 7:30 p.m. in Cairns Recital Hall of the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in downtown St. Catharines.
