Young Patrons Circle members get their photos taken backstage with Cirque artists during intermission, March 2014.
The month of June is a time of transition for a lot of people – we graduate, travel the world and experience new things. As we prepare to kick off our Young Patrons Circle program for the 2014-15 season, starting with our Patio Party this Thursday, let’s take a look back at some of the most memorable moments from last year.
The 2013-14 season began with Great Romantics which featured romantic genre gurus Brahms and Rachmaninoff. YPC members had the opportunity to meet guest musician and pianist Jon Kimura Parker at the Tapas Lounge after party.
Following The Four Seasons in November, members got a backstage tour and meet and greet with musicians.
Happy Hour with the HPO featured the HPO Brass and Hachey the MouthPEACE at the Baltimore House, March 2014.
The HPO certainly became a circus at Cirque de la Symphonie where Young Patrsons Circle members had the chance to have their photos taken with our acrobats. They even stopped by the after party to chat with some of our young patrons!
There was Happy Hour with the HPO featuring Hachey the MouthPEACE at the Baltimore House where young professionals swung by after work for libations beat-boxing and brass duo.
Our first Music Director Candidate Gemma New introduced herself to the YPC crowd at the after party on her night as guest conductor at Pastorale.
Our composer in residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte and two Young Patrons Circle members at our Gala, May 2014.
The HPO’s first annual gala, An Evening with James Sommerville, was held in honour of departing Music Director Jamie. Guests enjoyed performances by the Darcy Hepner Jazz Orchestra, soloist Paula Arciniega, and the HPO Wind Trio.
We look forward to beginning the highlight reel for the our 2014-15 Young Patrons Circle program and meeting new friends along the way. The summer kicks off with the hpoGO Summer Patio Party happening this Thursday, June 26 at Radius. Be sure to catch a live performance of HPO violinist and violist duet and an up close and personal look at their string instruments.
