Guest conductor Dinuk Wijeratne will lead the orchestra

Sannu LawtThe PEI Symphony Orchestra’s upcoming concert will feature a performance by this year’s Suzanne Brenton Award winner, violinist Sannu Lawt.

The Suzanne Brenton Memorial Award is sponsored by the PEI Symphony Orchestra each year at the Kiwanis Provincial Music Festival, through which a music student is selected by adjudication to receive a cash prize and given the opportunity to perform a concerto with the orchestra. In May 2017, Charlottetown resident Sannu Lawt was selected for this award as well as the President's Award for the best overall musicianship and the Miriam and Albert Goldman Award which is made available to young musicians who go on to perform at the National Music Festival.

Lawt, who is now studying music at Mount Allison University says, “to perform with the PEI Symphony has always been a dream of mine, and I am so happy to make this dream a reality.” Her featured performance will consist of American composer Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto, and the program will also include Dvorak’s 8th Symphony and Violet Archer’s Sinfonietta.

The concert will be led by guest conductor Dinuk Wijeratne, and will take place at 2:30 pm on March 4 at Zion Presbyterian Church. Tickets are available through the Confederation Centre’s box office or at the door of the event. There will also be a free pre-concert talk at 1:30 pm in Zion’s Youth Chapel, where Wijeratne and Lawt will provide their insights into the music to be performed.
