Regina Symphony Orchestra Season Opens with A Night of Beethoven: Mosaic Beethoven Gala to Compliment Concert

September 10th, 2015-The Regina Symphony Orchestra is excited to begin its 106th season of exciting musical performances, with first concert held on Saturday, September 20th: A Night of Beethoven.  This promises to be an exciting concert including Beethoven’s Overture to the Creatures of Prometheus as well as Piano Concerto No.5, “Emperor” featuring Canadian pianist, Angela Cheng.  Of course, the concert would not be complete without Beethoven’s famous Symphony No.5!
Consistently praised for her brilliant technique, tonal beauty and superb musicianship, Canadian pianist Angela Cheng is one of the country’s national treasures. In addition to regular guest appearances with virtually every orchestra in Canada, she has also performed with the Alabama Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic, Colorado Symphony, Houston Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Jacksonville Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic, Saint Louis Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Syracuse Symphony, Utah Symphony and the Israel Philharmonic.  In the spring of 2012, Ms. Cheng made her highly acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut with the Edmonton Symphony.  She also made her debut at the prestigious Salzburg Festival in a recital with Pinchas Zukerman during the summer of 2012. 
In 2009, at the invitation of Pinchas Zukerman, Ms. Cheng toured both Europe and China as a member of the Zukerman ChamberPlayers.  She joined them again in the spring of 2010 for a U.S. tour, which included concerts at Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and the 92nd Street Y in New York.  Subsequent seasons have seen multiple tours of Europe, Asia and South America, including performances at the Musikverein in Vienna, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and at the Schleswig-Holstein, Salzburg and Ravinia festivals.
Angela Cheng has been Gold Medalist of the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Masters Competition, as well as the first Canadian to win the prestigious Montreal International Piano Competition. Other awards include the Canada Council’s coveted Career Development Grant and the Medal of Excellence for outstanding interpretations of Mozart from the Mozarteum in Salzburg. 
In conjunction with A Night of Beethoven, the RSO will host its Annual Opening Night Gala, The Mosaic Beethoven Gala.  This black-tie affair supports the numerous RSO Education and Outreach initiatives.  The evening will begin with a Champagne Reception, followed by a formal dinner prepared by Chef Leo Pantel.  Attendees will enjoy the RSO concert at 8:00 pm and will later enjoy a dessert reception featuring live music by the Noteables.
