The second concert of 2011 will be on October 22 at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. We have invited the well-known virtuoso, GUO Yazhi, to perform a concert with various Chinese traditional and western wind instruments. Mr. Guo is the Principal suona of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra. He had been selected by the Ministry of Culture as China’s Most Outstanding Musicians in 1998. He has also received high acclaim for his numerous performances around the world. The versatile Mr. Guo will be performing on a variety of wind instruments with the Toronto Chinese Orchestra. The program will include the “The World of Winds” – Concerto for various wind instruments, “The Silk Road Fantasia” – Guanzi concerto, “Jasmine Flower” – Saxophone and Erhu music, “Nine Hundred and Ninety Nine Roses” – Suona solo, and “Picking Jujube” – a traditional Suona solo. The Toronto Chinese Orchestra will also perform several orchestral ensemble pieces including “Great Wall Rhapsody, 4th Movement”, “Chang E” & “General’s Command”. This is a concert of wind instruments that has never been seen in Toronto. The audience will truly be transported into the wonderful world of winds by the talented and expressive Mr. Guo!
