Rite of Spring

With guest artists violist Sharon Wei, storyteller John Rice, and conductor Tania Miller

This concert is generously supported by Elizabeth Parmeter and William Horne.

London Symphonia celebrates the season of new life with Igor Stravinsky’s monumental work The Rite of Spring, Alice Ping Yee Ho’s Jubilation of Spring and the première of Richard Mascall’s Ziigwan (Spring), commissioned by London Symphonia and conducted by Tania Miller.

Ziigwan takes us into the forest as plants and creatures awaken through the gift of the sun’s warmth after their long winter’s sleep. Joining the orchestra for Ziigwan will be the mesmerizing storytelling of John Rice, an Elder of Wasauksing First Nation, and musical force of nature, violist Sharon Wei.

Canadian composer Alice Ping Yee Ho’s Jubilation of Spring symbolizes the exuberance of the Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration and celebrates the coexistence of different cultures and traditions within Canada.

A darker vision, the music to the ballet The Rite of Spring depicts a fictional ritual wherein a young woman selected as part of the eponymous Rite dances herself to death to ensure a prosperous year in pre-industrial Russia.
