PEI Symphony guest artist, pop singer David MylesFollowing the fiery season opener Exquisite Fires & Denise Djokic, the PEI Symphony launches their second concert of the 2018-19 season on November 25, 2:30 pm at Homburg Theatre at the Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown. The concert will feature the Prokofiev’s 5th Symphony and guest artist David Myles.

Music Director Mark Shapiro will first lead the orchestra in a performance of Symphony no. 5, composed by Sergei Prokofiev. The four-movement piece was written in 1944, towards the end of World War II. The work was completed in an impressively short one-month span. “In the fifth symphony, I wanted to sing the praises of the free and happy man—his strength, his generosity and the purity of his soul. I cannot say I chose this theme; it was born in me and had to express itself,” Prokofiev stated. After it’s Moscow premiere, the symphony was performed in America and earned Prokofiev the distinction of appearing on the cover of Time Magazine in November of 1945.

The second half of the program features guest roots artist David Myles. The quirky and winsome Myles has long been celebrated on Canada’s East Coast music scene. He released Real Love, his tenth album, in 2017 and has just released his eleventh, Le grand départ in September of this year. He says that it is the fulfillment of his long time dream to record an album in French. For this concert Myles will be joined by sisters Reeny and Mahalia Smith on vocals, as well as a 60-piece orchestra.

A free pre-concert talk featuring Music Director Mark Shapiro and David Myles will take place in The Confederation Centre’s Studio 1 at 1:30 pm, prior to the concert. Shapiro and Myles will chat with the audience and provide personal insight into the music that will be performed.

Tickets for this performance are $40 for adults/seniors and $15 for students and are available through the Confederation Box Office in advance of the concert. A limited number of free youth tickets are available through the auspices of the orchestra’s John Clement Memorial Fund.
