A Celebration of Oscar Peterson – WSO

The Windsor Symphony Orchestra
Robert Franz,  conductor

Oscar Peterson, regarded as one the greatest jazz pianists of all time, is among Canada’s most honoured musicians. Peterson’s Canadiana Suite, originally written as a ballet, will be performed with jazz trio and orchestra. Florence Price was the first African-American woman to have a work performed by a major US orchestra. Her third symphony premiered in 1938 right across the river from us at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
