The Hockey Sweater

  • Image used by arrangement with Tundra

Join the VSO for a concert celebrating Canadian identity and growing up in Canada. Explore many things that make our culture unique, including, of course, our love of hockey! Featuring the Vancouver premiere of The Hockey Sweater: a work based on Roch Carrier’s classic story and inspired by Carrier’s own childhood. The Hockey Sweater is a tale about a boy who was forced to wear a Maple Leafs jersey in the small, hockey-mad town in Quebec where he grew up. Music composed by Abigail Richardson.

Special prize raffle from the Vancouver Canucks: Win a signed jersey or a team-signed hockey stick. All ticket holders in attendance have a chance to win!

Join us and Vancouver Canuck’s mascot FIN in the Orpheum lobby at 1:00pm for the VSO Instrument Fair, where children have the opportunity to touch and play real orchestral instruments generously provided by Tom Lee Music. The BC Sports Hall of Fame will have an exhibit set up in the lobby before and after the show featuring an exciting variety of hockey items, including a rare collection of hockey cards, and a special set of sweaters.
