UXBRIDGE: St Paul’s Anglican Church will be full of beautiful music on November 12th, for their Remembrance Day Concert.
Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E-minor will be performed by a symphony of 35 musicians, under the direction of Orpheus Symphonietta Director, Stuart Beaudoin.
As well, he will play an original piece of music he composed for the symphony, using 20th century composition techniques.
Stuart has directed similar concerts at various venues around the area for the last 39 years and is excited about St Paul’s Remembrance Day Concert.
“The Tchaikovsky is a huge symphony, 35 people will make a lot of noise but they’ll make beautiful noise, it’s a gorgeous symphony,” Stuart said.
The Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra has been characterized as working through personal or national pain, with an ultimate victory at the end. Stuart told the Standard, one of the piece’s main themes is sacrifice, which is important to think about, especially on Remembrance Day.
“The music should help people either understand the sacrifice or become refocused on it,” Stuart said. “Hopefully, when you come out of the concert, there is an uplifting feeling that good did come out of this, through the sacrifices that are made, people are liberated.”
The concert has space for 220 people, and it could be a full house. He encourages people of all musical tastes to come out. He added, that there is no orchestra in the North Durham area, so this concert is a great opportunity to hear some beautifully performed classical music.
“We don’t have an orchestra up here in the North end of Durham, so come hear some great music. You don’t have to be an appassionato of classical music to like this stuff,” Stuart added. “Regardless of your musical taste this will be a party and it will be enjoyable to go to.”
The concert takes place on Sunday November 12th, from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tickets for the event are $15 and can be purchased online, at https://starticketing.com/tktweb/, or in person at Sugar FX in Uxbridge, located on 13 Brock Street East.

He said, “[Come out to the concert] if you want to have a different kind of uplifting experience, for this Remembrance Day.”
