The Winters of Childhood
Sunday, December 8, 2019 - 3:00pm
Pre-concert chat at 2:15 with Michael Newnham
Join Orchestra Toronto for our annual wintertime celebration of childhood, tradition, and the joys that come with snow, ice, and the turning of the year.
- The Hockey Sweater is an iconic story of winter, hockey, and childhood. Abigail Schulte-Richardson's lively setting of the story includes narration, hockey sweaters, and a rivalry between the sections of the orchestra to rival the traditional Habs-Maple-Leafs rivalry.
- Claude Debussy dedicated the Children's Corner to his three-year-old daughter. Each movement is inspired by one of her books or toys.
