Sponsored by Monkman Gracie & Johnston Insurance Brokers, the Peterborough Symphony Orchestra presents The New World at Showplace Performance Centre.

When Dvorak moved from Prague to New York City in 1892, his journey greatly inspired his Symphony no. 9 "From the New World." The PSO's own expedition of the New World begins with compositions influenced by Dvorak's music - Morawetz's "Carnival Overture" and Copland's Old American Songs, featuring baritone Michael Nyby - before tracing their roots back to the titular Symphony.

This first concert of the PSO's 50th anniversary season is dedicated to Peterborough businesswoman and PSO champion, Erica Cherney. Since her passing this summer, Erica has been deeply missed by her community, including the staff, musicians and board of the PSO. The organization would like to honour Erica's enduring contributions to the organization with this special dedication. Erica's daughter, Karen Cherney, will open the concert with a few words about her mother's connection to the PSO.

Single tickets are available now from the Showplace box office online and by calling 705-742-7469. Adult tickets cost $20, $38.50 and $48.50; Student tickets cost $10. Ticket holders are reminded that "Meet the Maestro," the free pre-concert chat with PSO Music Director, Michael Newnham, will begin at 6:40pm in the Showplace theatre.

In honour of 50 years, the PSO is offering special subscription pricing for a limited time!
