Last night, many members of the CFCA attended the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra’s (CPO) Nordic Masters concert at the Jack Singer. CFCA was proudly recognized as one of the event supporters.
The evening started with a pre-concert discussion with guest conductor Rune Bergmann, who graduated from the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. You can read more about him at http://imgartists.com/artist/rune_bergmann
The concert began at 8pm and consisted of three pieces:
1. Sibelius’ Finlandia
2. Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, featuring the talented, 21-year old Conrad Tao on the piano (read more about this impressive young man at http://conradtao.com/ )
3. Nielsen’s Symphony No. 4 “The Inextinguishable”
Following the concert, a post-event conversation occurred with members of the orchestra concerning the featured pieces.
Overall, the event was a great success and our members had a lovely time.
