This concert will feature celebrated Calgary Philharmonic and University of Calgary organist Neil Cockburn performing on the Ronald B. Bond Organ. This organ is one of only four in North America designed by the Ahrend workshop, and is the only instrument of its kind in Canada. The tonal design and specifications of the organ are modeled on the 17th Century north German organs design. The concert will also feature renowned coloratura soprano Laura Hynes and the UCalgary String Quartet with two guest alumni in a performance of the monumental string sextet, Souvenir de Florence by Tchaikovsky.
