The Windsor Symphony Orchestra’s Conductor Laureate, John Morris Russell, returns to the city this weekend to lead the orchestra in three performances.

The concerts, titled Haydn & Friends, feature Handel’s Concerto Grosso, Holzbauer’s Sinfonia in D, Haydn’s Symphony no. 44, and Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto in B flat major with Eric Varner on Bassoon.

Performances will take place at the Capitol Theatre on Friday at 11am and 7:30pm with an encore performance at Leamington United Mennonite Church on Saturday at 7:30pm.

There is a pre-concert talk one hour prior to all three performances in which Maestro Russell and Eric Varner will discuss the composers and the music on the program.

Tickets are $35 for Friday morning, $40 for Friday evening, and $35 for Saturday evening. Senior and student discounts available.

Detailed concert information is available online here.
