Canton Symphony Orchestra returns to Umstattd Hall. We begin with a new piece by Cleveland composer Margaret Brouwer. A soaring and melodic composition, The Art of Sailing at Dawn perfectly captivates our joy and anticipation for returning to the stage. Our Principal Flute, Jenny Robinson, will play Ibert’s Flute Concerto.
This strings concert is the last “Prelude” concert before the beginning of our main stage MasterWorks season. Upbeat and celebratory, we begin with Irish Dance Suite by up-and-coming composer Quinn Mason. Mason is in his early 20s and is already a widely revered talent in the Classical music community.
These concerts are included in the base subscription package.
MasterWorks returns after almost two full years of being away from Umstattd Hall. Daniel Perttu’s A Planet’s Odyssey will feature Canton favorite Jeffrey Biegel on piano. Originally slated for our 2019-2020 MasterWorks season, it was rescheduled due to the pandemic. We are over the moon to still be featuring this world premiere by Perttu. Jessie Montgomery’s Starburst will also make its first appearance in Canton.
A concert of epic proportions, Triumphant Tchaikovsky will feature violinist Jinjoo Cho on the eponymous composer’s Violin Concerto. As a charismatic female solo artist, Jinjoo is redefining what it means to be a consummate classical musician in the modern society. Rick Robinson’s exuberant and resounding Essay No. 1 will be played alongside Sibelius’ Third Symphony, which was its inspiration.
CSO Principal Horn Meghan Guegold and Concertmaster Cristian Zimmerman will play Strauss and Prokofiev concertos, respectively. Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges was a French Classical composer, virtuoso violinist, conductor of the leading symphony orchestra in Paris, and a renowned champion fencer. His Symphony No. 2 will be performed in Umstattd Hall for the first time.
The first selection of this program is Johannes Brahms’ Tragic Overture, a concert overture written in 1880. He chose the title “tragic” to emphasize the turbulent, tormented character of the piece, in essence a free-standing symphonic movement. Sara Davis Buechner will be featured for Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto. Buechner is a world-renowned pianist known for her virtuosity, imaginative vision, and emotional dynamacy.
An ode to a brighter future, join us in celebration as we reflect on a period of strife in our country and world – and our triumphant finale to our long-awaited return. GRAMMY award-winning composer Joan Tower is lauded by The New Yorker as “one of the most successful woman composers of all time.” We will be featuring her Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman No. 1, along with Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 to conclude this season of new beginnings and an epic return to the stage.
These concerts may be added to your subscription before public access.

Abbey Road was the Beatles’ 11th studio album and the last in which all four Beatles participated. While most definitely not a tribute act, Jeans ‘n Classics faithfully interprets the music of legendary rock and pop albums and artists, with their own special and signature flair. Previously, Jeans ‘n Classics joined CSO for The Music of Queen in 2020.
