Message from Reg Milley Board Chair Our city has been growing at an astounding rate the past few years, and at the heart of it all is the Arts District. Edmonton is a vital city because of its diverse culture, thriving arts scene, and the passion with which Edmontonians engage with their community. At the end of my first year as Chair of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra & Francis Winspear Centre for Music Board of Directors, I am filled with local pride at the many ways in which the arts community continues to grow in partnerships and inclusivity. Investment in the arts happens in all forms. From the generous funding provided by government, businesses, and individuals, to the equally valuable contribution of time by the many performers, patrons, and supporters of the arts, the ESO and Winspear family is united by a simple belief in the importance of music in our lives. In recent years, we have worked diligently toward making music available to everyone in some form, whether through participation or as an audience member, and our growing community outreach programming reflects that goal. We also plan to bring more of the community into our facility by expanding the building and adding new performance and education space. We are delighted by the outpouring of community and municipal support as we continue to pursue the vision of a space dedicated to music, humming with activity all day long, seven days a week.

Music Director Bill Eddins has extended his contract with the ESO, remaining committed to the orchestra with the new educational outreach focus, as well as in an artistic capacity; his dedication and experience as a music educator has already led to many positive changes throughout his decade–long tenure. It is inspiring to work alongside Bill and the other artistic leaders who contribute to this community, including our arts partners as well as the national and international guests that our city hosts. Their work has been key in Edmonton’s development as an artistic hub. I wish to acknowledge the members of the Board who have served with me this year, as well as previous Board Chair Steven LePoole, whose dedication as Chair of the Winspear Completion Committee is of key importance to that project. I especially thank exiting Directors Maria David–Evans, Megan Evans, Travis Huckell, Kathy Knowles, Carolyn Campbell and Leanne Krawchuk, for their dedication to the Board. I would like to thank Bill Eddins and the ESO Musicians for their artistry, and Annemarie Petrov and her team for the leadership that they offer to both organizations and the arts community. I am looking forward with great anticipation to what the next year will bring.

Message from Bill Eddins

Executive Director

Music Director

Six years ago the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Francis Winspear Centre for Music set out on a course that would fundamentally change the future. While maintaining our commitment to produce exceptional music experiences, we made daring changes in restructuring the organizations and have instilled in every layer of staff a desire for excellence and adaptability. Most importantly, we began to voice something that has always been true: our patrons are at the heart of everything we do. The Edmonton Arts District thrives because we have a community that values the arts, and our mission is to serve that community. The changes we are making in our own organization are reflected in the city at large. Despite a recession, construction is booming and the downtown revitalization is well underway. Soon we will share downtown with a new arena and Ice District, an LRT, and a dozen new apartment towers and hotels that will bring thousands of people to the area. Together with our arts partners, we are adapting to these changes. The challenges posed by a struggling economy and a rapidly growing, diverse population have given rise to innovative ideas and cautious risk-taking. The past year saw unprecedented quantities of collaborative activities, events and festivals, and we have been proud to partner with many of our colleagues in the arts and culture sectors. The year started off in spectacular fashion with ATB Financial Symphony in the City - a series of three outdoor concerts that took place in Churchill Square and under the High Level Bridge, attracting

over 40,000 people. The events were made possible thanks to the outstanding leadership of our sponsor, ATB Financial, and the supporting vision by the City while Edmonton played host to the 2014 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final. With the World Triathlon’s homebase in Hawrelak Park, Symphony Under the Sky took a hiatus in 2014. Our sincere gratitude extends to the three orders of government who show their support every year through the Edmonton Arts Council and the City of Edmonton, Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Government of Alberta, Canada Council for the Arts and Canadian Heritage. We are also thankful for the contributions made by foundations and the significant support of our partners in the business and arts communities. Most of all, we want to thank our patrons. Everything that happens in this hall is because of the trust you place in us. To my colleague Bill Eddins and the musicians of the orchestra, thank you for your outstanding artistry and inspired performances. To our dedicated staff, and the volunteers who contribute their time at the Winspear Centre and to our YONA-Sistema program, you are the heartbeat of the organization. I also thank Marcia Mielke for her leadership as Acting Director of Finance & Operations. I am privileged to work with a committed Leadership team and a Board of Directors whose unflagging efforts make an impact not just within our organization, but throughout the community. It is our pleasure and privilege to share the wonder of music with you.

The ESO’s 2014/2015 season kicked off with an incredible bang over the Labour Day weekend, as tens of thousands of Edmontonians crowded into Churchill Square and then Kinsmen Park for classical music in its most family–friendly form: nostalgic Disney hits and the McDades performing Canadiana tunes under the blue Alberta sky. Symphony in the City set the stage (as it were) for a groundbreaking season. Last season’s repertoire ranged from classical landmarks such as Symphonie Fantastique to up–and–coming stars like JUNO Award–winning Meaghan Smith. Our Robbins Pops series, always dazzling, showed a powerfully dramatic side as Jack Everly presented a multi–media performance that took our audience through the turbulent 1940s. It was breathtaking. One of the biggest highlights for me was Béla Bartók’s Miraculous Mandarin. As ever, our range of guest artists ran the gamut from established performers to rising newcomers – but also included no fewer than 12 members of our own Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. As well, our commitment to present works never before performed by this orchestra, including several world or Canadian premieres, continued to delight our patrons. Live at the Winspear grows every year – not just more concerts, but forming new partnerships with local artists and cultural groups, and reaching out to new audiences. On page 10 of this report, you can read a message from Programming Manager Terry Wickham, and find out about the new Live at the Winspear Summer Patio Series.

The ESO’s Education concerts and Symphony for Kids series have grown side by side into remarkable programs. They are fun, they are accessible, and they expose over 25,000 children every year to a live classical music experience. The highlight of the season was a theatrical production that we co–commissioned for Platypus Theatre, a local arts partner regularly featured on family concerts. I can’t tell you how excited I am about the Tommy Banks Institute for Musical Creativity. It seemed like every time I turned around last season there was another program: like the classrooms of elementary students coming to the Winspear for the Science of Sound, and our brand new Conducting Your Business geared toward corporate leadership development. It’s easy to imagine the buzz of activity that will go on all the time in the expanded Winspear just a few years from now. I would like to thank three exceptional musicians who retired from our ranks at the end of the 2014/2015 season. Colin Ryan, Sheila Laughton and Mikiko Kohjitani leant their considerable talents to the ESO for many decades. Alissa Cheung resigned from the ESO at the beginning of 2015. She dedicated her skills to her role as a violinist and to Committee membership until joining the Bozzini String Quartet, and we wish her the best in her exciting new venture. We welcomed Laura Veeze and Frédéric Payant, who joined the ESO at the beginning of the season.

Musician Retirements This season marked the final year for three of our musicians: Principal Cellist Colin Ryan, Assistant Principal Cellist Sheila Laughton, and Violist Mikiko Kohjitani. Colin, Sheila and Mikiko have been a part of the ESO almost since its inception. In their four decades with the symphony they enjoyed a wonderful camaraderie with their sections, and they remember the incredible change that came over the group when they first moved into the Winspear Centre. Most of all, they loved making music together. “I would close my eyes sometimes and it’s as if a veil would part,” Colin said recently. “You’d feel like you were becoming part of something from another world. Just to have been part of that sound is something I’ll carry with me forever.”

In Memoriam: ESO Volunteer Liz Tweddle December 21, 1936 – June 6, 2015 Liz Tweddle was a dear friend of the ESO and a dedicated volunteer for fifteen years. She was enthusiastic, reliable, and always showed up ready to brainstorm a new idea with the team. She involved her daughter Nancy with the symphony, and for many years they volunteered together. Knowing her love of music, her family whisked her on a birthday trip to hear the ESO at Carnegie Hall; afterwards she spoke with delight about their wonderful gift. She is deeply missed by everyone at the Winspear Centre.

The Miraculous Mandarin

ESO & Live at the Winspear Patron Attendance

Bill Eddins first saw Béla Bartók’s The Miraculous Mandarin when he was 14 years old. He describes the profound impact that the ballet had on him as an aspiring musician: “I was completely overwhelmed by this experience. It’s terrifying, it’s brilliant, it’s psychotic, it’s funny at times. It’s important for me, once in my life, to give that kind of experience to other people.” Decades later, the ESO made that dream a reality. The Miraculous Mandarin was composed like a film score, intended to accompany a tale that is at times explicit and horrifyingly savage. The content is so controversial that it was promptly banned across Europe. Even though it is now known as one of the seminal works of early 20th century expressionism, it is more often performed as a true ballet, rather than the chilling pantomime it was intended to be. Naturally, Bill was determined to make the ESO’s performance the first of its kind in Canada, and set out to look for a cast. When he learned that there was a world–renowned pantomime artist here in Edmonton, he sent an email out to the whole ESO staff, looking for more information. The response he received was surprising to say the least. “You mean Zillur?” came several replies. Zillur Rahman John has been part the Winspear's Guest Services team for the past eight years, but until last April he had never performed

on the Winspear stage. With The Miraculous Mandarin, his incredible talent could finally be shared with our ESO patrons. “When I first heard this music, I didn’t understand anything. I thought, ‘It’s too complicated’,” Zillur admitted, though he immediately agreed to the

“One of the most visceral and sometimes harrowing half hours you will experience in a very long time.” - Mark Morris, Edmonton Journal

The ESO performed the music of Led Zeppelin in two nights of Rock'n'Roll–Classical fusion. Amplified with a full rock band and screaming vocals, each concert began with an instrument petting zoo in the lobby, supplied by Long & McQuade Musical Instruments and Gibson Guitar. The event was so successful that we immediately planned an “ESO Rocks” concert series for the 2015/2016 season featuring the music of Pink Floyd and The Who. The night also began a partnership with Long & McQuade that will lead to more pre– concert lobby activities with instruments.

performance. As rehearsals progressed, the complex layers of both music and the psychology of the characters was slowly peeled away, until Zillur was convinced of Bartók’s mastery. “There is something hidden in the music. It’s really a wonderful and exciting piece of art.”

Over the past three years, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Live at the Winspear have seen an overall increase in patron attendance. The inaugural Symphony in the City festival was in 2014, accounting for last season’s ESO Festival attendance increase.

16,406 Live at the Winspear

Before coming to Canada, Zillur had a thriving career in Bangladesh as a non–verbal actor in mime, pantomime and interpretive movement. His passion for pantomime ballet is driven by the same belief that inspires many music–lovers: its power comes from the expression of emotions and thoughts without the barriers of language and inflection. “Realize how your body works, how your body speaks,” Zillur says, “through your face, it touches people who are watching and observing you as your character.”

Tommy Banks Institute for Musical Creativity YONA–Sistema

To be the preeminent centre for imaginative and innovative musical discovery

The Youth Orchestra of Northern Alberta is a program for underserved youth in our community where students receive musical instruction and holistic social support at no cost to their families. Through the development of a specialized skill and engagement in a community of like-minded peers and role models, we provide a safe learning environment that inspires youth to think beyond any limitations they may believe about what is achievable for them in school or in life. Our aspiration for the program is that it will result in long-term positive change not only for program participants and their families, but for the whole of their communities.

We are committed to taking a leadership role in discovering and fostering connections between community organizations, businesses, and arts groups, to build reciprocal partnerships that make our Edmonton Region a stronger and more vibrant community, and to reinforce the Winspear as a true Centre for Music and a home for community groups.

Conducting Your Business Conducting Your Business is a corporate team building program designed by the Banks Institute and launched in June 2015. A leadership group from ATB Financial joined the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra on stage for the inaugural session, where they spent an afternoon being led by conductor–consultant Rob Kapilow through Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik; the many layers of this masterpiece revealed the difference between good and great, both in a composition and as a metaphor for business.

In 2014/2015, 40 students received dedicated music, academic, and nutrition & well-being instruction for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week. The number of students is growing every year. We also piloted YONA Explorers, which is now a 24-student early start program offered one day per week at Mother Teresa and Delton Elementary Schools.

You, our generous community, invested $150,000 toward ensuring the YONA-Sistema program remains sustainable and vital. The evening featured the ESO, the Honourable Tommy Banks, Bill Eddins, many of our arts partners, and YONA-Sistema student performers.

Winspear Completion Project

Live at the Winspear

Total Project Cost: $53 million

Message from Terry Wickham, Programming Manager

The City of Edmonton has committed $13 million toward the construction of the new facility. With the unanimous support of City Council, the Winspear Completion Project is in a strong position to move forward.

Live at the Winspear delighted many Edmonton music fans this year by bringing in well-known acts from Canada and around the world.

Last season saw the launch of the Live at the Winspear Summer Patio Series. On Tuesdays and Thursdays over the summer, the Winspear terrazzo came to life with free programming. Eight Edmonton-based artists, performers, and community groups were featured, and almost 10,000 Edmontonians experienced the series’ inaugural year, whether for an hour or a few minutes passing through. We look forward to developing relationships with local cultural and arts groups through this annual program to reach as many Edmontonians as possible.

The Winspear Centre is a popular venue for bookings by community groups, business, individuals, touring artists and more. There were 881 activities held in the hall, lobby, and studio spaces during the 2014/2015 season.

A Capital Campaign has been launched to raise community support and secure important funds that will ensure our city will have a vibrant, energetic Centre for Music in the heart of the Arts District. Like the original Winspear Centre, the project is fueled by the enthusiasm, dedication, and personal investment of the members of our community.

The support that Live at the Winspear receives from the Edmonton Arts Council, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Alberta Culture, and Canadian Heritage demonstrates the government’s commitment to spreading live music and promoting Canadian art and artists. We are grateful that they continue to be a part of our programming. With their investment, Live at the Winspear continues to expand its Canadian programming and deliver first–rate shows to a growing audience.

In 2009, the ESO & Winspear Centre embarked on a new course of action. Now, six years later, many of the goals outlined in the 2009–2014 Strategic Plan have been achieved and the organization is strong, unified, and its various constituents are working collaboratively in the same direction to deliver exceptional experiences in music and guest service. We are now in a position to broaden our targeted focus on deepening relationships with patron households, and to explore the Winspear enterprise’s role in serving the community at large.

Goal One: Artistic Excellence

Goal Two: Inspire Musical Creativity

Goal Three: Be a True Centre for Music

Goal Four: Resilience & Sustainability

We deliver performances of exceptional quality that provoke profound emotional responses and create enduring memories.

We are a driving inspiration and advocate for musical arts education, experiences, and appreciation.

We are a true Centre for Music that is a haven for music–making and musical discovery, an epicenter for creativity, and the home for music in Edmonton.

We act as stewards for the future of music in Edmonton and the Northern Alberta region by creating new opportunities for music to flourish, maintaining the Winspear Centre in top condition, building capacity through staff and artist development, and ensuring operational stability through relationship–based fundraising strategies and fiscally responsible business practices.

Over the course of Bill Eddins’ decade–long tenure as Music Director, the ESO’s fearless audience has been exposed to extraordinarily diverse programming, from well–loved classics like Beethoven’s Fifth to modern favourite’s such as hits from Broadway. Bill and other conductors who have led the ESO guide symphony-goers through the history and musicality of each piece as part of our artistic strategy.

At the heart of any culture is a belief system. Ours is that every life is fundamentally improved by access to music, and our mission is to make that possible with a diverse range of accessible programs. In 2013, we launched the Tommy Banks Institute for Musical Creativity, run by the Department of Musical Creativity. (See pages 8–9 for more detail on education

Francis Winspear dreamed of a true centre for music bringing all people together in the Edmonton Arts District. The Completion Project, now in design–development phase, will fulfill that dream; the new facility will include a flex–use acoustic hall, studio space, classrooms for Banks Institute programming, and an interactive Discovery Centre. When finished, the expanded Winspear Centre will be a magnet that draws people in from all walks of life to share in music and community.

Until 2009, the ESO and Winspear Centre were separate entities that shared a workplace and a passion for music. Under the Strategic Plan we aligned our administration and governance. Now we operate with a united staff, Board, and vision, and pursue jointly the same strategic goals.

What our patrons are saying... Wow! Wow! Wow and Wow! Thank you to everyone who made SUTS a spectacular part of our summer, especially our amazing ESO. The Rachmaninoff Concerto was breathtaking. Thank you again. – Ruth Lineker

Every day after school, [my child] was practically bursting with stories and descriptions of what he heard, saw and did. He’s still talking about it, two weeks later, and I believe that he and his classmates will remember their experiences for a very long time. – Joan Fitzpatrick, Parent of

Congratulations on a wonderful initiative. It is most appreciated. My experience was incredible, the musician beside me (Liz Koch) ensured that I learn many things about orchestra etiquette etc. She certainly seemed to understand the educational part of this and took it very seriously and I really appreciated this.

Science of Sound participant We love coming to the ESO because we hear new artists and music, enjoy the conductors and always leave feeling better than when we arrived. – Rita Haugh

My child's self confidence related to performing in front of an audience has improved. She has become a lot more sociable and independent as well.

The orchestra is so important to our city - I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to listen to fabulous music! – Dr. Ria Busink
