Join us inside Mississauga's world-class Living Arts Centre to celebrate our thrilling 2017/18 season premiere! Experience the intensity of the Sibelius violin concertoperformed by Corey Gemmell, our very own concertmaster; Mahler's titanic first symphony, and Alex Eddington's "Dancing about Architecture", a two minute fanfare inspired by Mississauga's iconic "Marilyn Monroe" towers.
Violinist Corey Gemmell has distinguished himself as a soloist and chamber musician with performances in Canada, Germany, the United States and China. Corey is concertmaster of the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Hamilton Orchestra and the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra. Corey has also performed in this role with the Boris Brott National Academy Orchestra, Toronto Mendelssohn Choir Orchestra, and Esprit Orchestra. He performs frequently with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra. Much in demand as a teacher, Mr. Gemmell’s students have distinguished themselves at provincial and national competitions. He is presently on faculty at the Western University, the National Music Camp of Canada and is a member of the Royal College of Examiners.
We regret to announce that, due to a recurring injury to his shoulder, Jonathan Crow will not perform as part of Symphonic Titans. We look forward to working with Jonathan at a later date.

Celebrating 150 Years of Community Orchestras in Ontario
As people from across Canada and the Province of Ontario celebrate 150 years, A Musical Journey: Celebrating 150 Years of Community Orchestras in Ontario commemorates this momentous anniversary by uncovering the history and origin of community orchestras in Ontario. We celebrate their success, share their stories, and highlight the talents of thousands of Ontario artists of the past 150 years.
