MCO / Scott Yoo



CONDUCTOR SCOTT YOO cuts a particularly dynamic figure on the MCO stage: dramatic, precise, and above all deeply musical. “The guy simply oozes music,” writes the Rocky Mountain News. He’s “totally connected to every aspect of the music” (Norfolk Daily News).

Host of PBS TV’s first classical music series Now Hear This, Scott’s charm and erudition as a popular educator are well known. How lucky we are that he emcees the MCO’s Candlelight Evening fundraiser on 8 November. He’ll offer a fascinating discussion of Bartók's Music for Strings, Percussion & Celesta, while an ensemble of MCO musicians illustrates with tasty musical morsels. Scott conducts the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra in a performance of the full work on November 9 at Westminster Church.

The event takes place at the historic Fort Gibraltar, where the elegantly curated music, drinks, and hors d'oeuvres served amid a rustic setting will take guests a world away – while still only minutes away from downtown!

Please note that no ticket will be mailed; your name will be on a list at the door. Tickets are $120 with a $90 tax receipt. The wearing of face masks is welcomed at this event. We look forward to seeing you!
