As of the 2011, the Kindred Spirits Orchestra has also established a 6-concert subscription series at the Flato Markham Theatre, in addition to 3 community-outreach and 2 educational concerts. Led by the charismatic Maestro Kristian Alexander, the Kindred Spirits Orchestra is enjoying an enormous popularity among York Region's residents and continues to attract avid audiences across the Greater Toronto Area. The Kindred Spirits Orchestra performs a wide range of compositions by Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Handel, Tchaikovsky, Haydn, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Chopin, and many others. Ardent supporter of contemporary music, the Kindred Spirits Orchestra created, also in 2011, Markham Contemporary Music Festival, an annual event that has brought to life great pieces of the 20th century by Lutoslavsky, Stravisnky, Philip Glass, Honegger as well as by illustrious Canadian composers such as Garry Kulesha, Brian Current, Larysa Kuzmenko, Daniel Friedman, Kevin Lau, Constantine Caravassilis and James Campbell. During the past few years alone, the orchestra has regularly worked with internationally renowned soloists such as pianists Andre Laplante, Christina Quilico and James Parker, harpist Ann Hobson Pilot, violinists Jacques Israelievitch, Joelle Kee and Marc Djokic, cellist Rachel Mercer, soprano Rebecca Whelan, and tenor Keith Klassen, among many others.

'From Darkness to Light' a wonderful concert. Great full sound and sight line, too. The Host, Alexa Petrenko did a good introduction to the pieces. Also, Alastari Thorburn-Vitols sang like an angel. Very talented artists! Easy drive from Toronto with lots of free parking.

I took my family and they loved it! The conductor is world class but also takes time to make sure guests feel welcome. He even let my little boy hold the baton.
