Conductor Carlos Izcaray returns to lead the KWS in this unique program that combines traditional and intriguing works, featuring TorQ, Canada’s premier percussion ensemble. The concert starts and ends with well-loved works from the most famous Czech composers. In contrast to his other symphonies of the period, Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 is cheerful and optimistic, and draws its inspiration from the Bohemian folk music that Dvořák loved.
