On Saturday, Jan. 20, at 7:30 p.m. ET, scroll down to watch the McGill Symphony Orchestra's first concert of 2018.
The MGSO's regular conductor, Alexis Hauser, is on sabattical, so the student musicians on this occasion will perform under Jean-Marie Zeitouni, artistic director of the I Musici de Montréal.
On the program: Stravinsky's Pulcinella Suite, Mozart's Symphony No. 41 and Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1. Pianist Timothy Ledger, who won McGill University's 2017-2018 Classical Concerto Competition, is the soloist.
