Ottawa Symphony Orchestra presents Symphonic Spectacular on Monday, November 18, 2019 at 7:30 pm at Carleton Dominion Chalmers Centre with guest conductor Jean-Francois Rivest and guest violinist Nikki Chooi.
Nikki Chooi has been described as “vigorous, colorful” by the New York Times. He has established himself as an artist of rare versatility. At this concert, he takes on one of the most technically challenging works of the solo violin repertoire. The force of Ottawa Symphony will be on display in Strauss’ tone poem depicting the death of an artist. Experience the full, rich harmonic textures of life, as told through the orchestra.
