In Partnership with the River Bookshop, and the Amherstburg Freedom Museum Windsor, the Windsor Symphony Orchestra presents WSO concertmaster, Lillian Scheirich, brings to life a concerto by the swashbuckling 18th century composer, Joseph Bologne, the Chevalier de St. Georges. Jessie Montgomery's composition Shift, Change, Turn provides a new twist on the four seasons. Jessie is one of the most exciting new composers on the scene today. Vocalist Florine Ndimubandi sings Amazing Grace and Oscar Peterson's 1962 Hymn to Freedom.
