Rocky Mountain Symphony Orchestra Concert in Cochrane February 8

The Rocky Mountain Symphony will return to Cochrane on February 8, for the premier concert of the season; this time, at a new venue, Bow Valley Baptist Church, and featuring audience favourite: American Violinist Odin Rathnam.

The Program will include:

  • New work by Duarte Silva
  • Haydn: Symphony #104
  • Beethoven: Violin Concerto

The Violin Concerto is widely viewed as the most important of Beethoven’s works for solo instrument and orchestra, and regarded as pre-eminent among violin concertos as a whole. It is, moreover the yardstick of a soloists stature, both in technique and artistry. The Beethoven Violin Concerto is always an important event for Virtuoso and Concert Organization alike.

RMSO is delighted to present this historic concert in 2020, the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s Birth.

RMSO is also performing this same concert on February 7 at the Polaris Centre. VIP tickets are sold out.
