The Korean Canadian Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1987 by Maestro Kim Sung-Soon, then with Maestro Richard Lee, has been dedicated to promoting excellence in classical music. They have performed in numerous venues in the Toronto area, including Roy Thomson Hall, Massey Hall, and George Weston Recital Hall.

The highlight of the program is Antonin Dvorak's Cello Concerto, a beloved masterpiece that showcases the virtuosity and expressiveness of the cello. Daniel Hamin Go, a rising star in the international classical music scene, will be the soloist for this piece. With an education that took place across five countries, Go has won numerous awards and competitions, and has performed with major concert halls in North America and Europe including Berliner Philharmonie and Carnegie Hall.

In addition to the concerto, the orchestra will also perform Dvorak's Symphony No. 9, 'From the New World'. This iconic work is known for its memorable melodies and fusion of American and European musical styles. The symphony is a testament to Dvorak's admiration for American culture, and has been a staple of the orchestral repertoire since its premiere in 1893.

KCSO appointed its first ever female music director in 2019, Maestra Sharon Lee, who will be leading this concert.

This promises to be a feast for classical music lovers, and a celebration of artistic excellence.
