Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra Extras C Chamber Finale
Fri, Apr 20


Time: 7:30 p.m.

Haven’t gotten your fill of violins, viola and cello? Wanting to warm those frozen heartstrings?  This is your last chance for the 2017-2018 Season! Come see the Musaeus String Quartet’s Extra C - Chamber Finale, Friday April 20, 2018 - 7:30 PM at La Cité des Prairies.

This concert caps off Musaeus’ run of shows for the 57th Season. Adding weight to the traditional string quartet repertoire is the inclusion of Lethbridge Symphony principal bassist Catherine McLaughlin, who joins the quartet for a performance of Dvorak’s unusually deep String Quintet in G Major. Also on the bill are lively works by Schubert and Shostakovich, maintaining the zing of expression that we’ve come to expect from the group.

“We’re always happy to have other members of the broader Lethbridge Symphony family join Musaeus on stage,” points out executive director Melanie Gattiker. ”We’re very excited to hear the warmth Catherine adds to the ensemble in addition to those classic, traditional works by Schubert and Shostakovich. It’s a wonderful enrichment of our audience’s musical palette.”

The Symphony returns May 7, 2018 with Youth & Fireworks. Included in the repertoire is Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto, featuring soloist and Young Artist Competition winner Yan Li. The Sinfonia Allegro youth ensemble will also join the orchestra in Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, and the Season goes out with a bang with Dvorak’s Eighth Symphony.

Tickets for Chamber Finale are $35 each, and are available anytime at or Monday through Friday, 1 - 5 PM by calling 403.328.6808 x 101. Audience members aged 15 - 29 can sign up for Access Pass and receive further discounts, while those 14 and under who are accompanied by a paying adult may take advantage of the Children’s Pass discount program.
