Oh the weather outside may be frightful but the music of the Timmins Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will be absolutely delightful!

The TSO is excited to welcome home as guest artist Timmins native Maghan McPhee who will join the orchestra, chorus and a wonderful children's chorus in celebrating the holiday season with music that is sure to bring Christmas cheer to one and all.

Soprano Maghan McPhee enjoys an active performance and teaching career. Recently, she worked with Alexander Shelley and Colm Feore in Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream (National Arts Centre Orchestra). She returned to the NAC stage in December as the soprano soloist in their annual Messiah. Ms. McPhee then launched her debut recording“Portrait”, a combination of art songs with resonant poetry that paints a picture of Maghan’s musical self. Her voice seems tailor-made to the the brilliance and difficulty in the Mozartian opera roles, including Ilia in Idomeneo, Susanna and Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro, Pamina in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Zerlina in Don Giovanni. Other roles are Micaela in Bizet’s Carmen, and most recently, Berta in Rossini’s Barbiere di Siviglia where she made her mark and “immediately had the public holding their breath during her brief but remarkable solo”(LeDroit). An accomplished concert performer, she has performed at Carnegie Hall, with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the American Symphony Orchestra and Symphony Nova Scotia. A graduate of the inaugural class of Dawn Upshaw’s Masters program at Bard College in New York, as well as the University of Ottawa and the University of Toronto, Maghan continues to study with legendary American soprano Benita Valente in Philadelphia.

Program selections will include the 1st Movement of Joseph Haydn's Toy Symphony, classics such as O Come, All Ye Faithful and Hark the Herald Angels Sing, music from those movie favourites Frozen and the Polar Express, selections from Handel's Messiah along with Raymond Vincy and Henri Martinet's classic Petit Papa Noël and Donald Fraser's This Christmastide, both of which will feature our children's choir and soloist. The Timmins Symphony Chorus will be featured in a performance of Dan Forrest's arrangement of the beautiful See Amid the Winter's Snow. Rounding out the program will be a Christmas singalong featuring our wonderful audience. Be sure to bring your best carolling voice!
