How lucky we are. For the past few years, cellist Colin Carr has made occasional visits to the Canadian prairies in between performing for packed houses in Europe alongside the likes of Sir Simon Rattle and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He joins the MCO for our season-opening concert, starting 2018/19 with a bang.

Carr’s concerts here are received with great fanfare, with the Winnipeg Free Press noting his consistent ability to inspire “roaring standing ovations” and the Calgary Herald gushing that Carr delivers “some of the most memorable performances we will ever likely hear in this part of the world.” A player of powerful conviction and rare virtuosity, he has become something of a celebrity among Winnipeg music-lovers.

Not one to shy away from the blockbusters of the cello repertoire, Carr delivered a riveting sold-out performance of Schumann’s Cello Concerto in A Minor at a sold out MCO concert a couple seasons back. He’s selected a cello concerto of equal stature for this concert: Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1, widely regarded as one of the most technically difficult pieces for the instrument.

Tickets, at $35 for adults, $33 for seniors and $15 for students and those under-30 (incl. GST), will be available 28 July 2018, at McNally Robinson, the West End Cultural Centre (586 Ellice at Sherbrook), Organic Planet (877 Westminster Ave) or MCO’s Ticketline (204-783-7377).
