Announcing the 2021-2022 Season
THE VANCOUVER SYMPHONY IS BACK!
Maestro Otto Tausk invites you to return to the concert hall this fall and join us for the VSO’s 103rd season.
“We have come through a most challenging and strange time. Now, let us turn a page and come back to the things we love most. For the musicians of the VSO and myself, that means making music with you. This will be a season of return, discovery, adaptation, and evolution.”
– Otto Tausk, VSO Music Director
Incredible guest artists include Lara St. John, Mischa Maisky, Yefim Bronfman, Buffy Sainte- Marie, Paul Shaffer, Steven Page, Jane Coop, Dee Daniels and many more.
The season underlines the VSO’s commitment to creating equity both on stage and in the repertoire performed. Four new works from Indigenous Canadian composers showcase the depth, talent, and variety of voices in our community. Maestro Otto Tausk will share the podium with guest conductors Anna Rakitina and Speranza Scappucci. A focus on Canadian special guests this season has artists ranging from Angela Cheng and Stewart Goodyear to new voices Blake Pouliot and Teiya Kasahara.
Building on the incredible success of TheConcertHall.ca, Canada’s first subscription streaming service for symphonic music, the VSO will continue its digital broadcasts, moving to the new VSO Online series. Ten full concerts will be livestreamed from the Orpheum stage throughout the season.
ATTENDING CONCERTS IN THE COVID ERA
This fall, audience safety will be the VSO’s key priority. The COVID era is dynamic. Health measures change with short notice. As a result, how the VSO sells tickets and seats audiences is likely to shift throughout the season.
To accommodate reduced capacity, the VSO has made the difficult decision to postpone subscription package sales this fall. Subscriber seats will be carried over to the 2022-23 season.
Comfort spacing will be implemented to create space between ticket holder groups. Extra sanitation protocols will be in place at our venues and hand cleaning stations will be available at all venues.
The new BC vaccine protocol will require proof of vaccination to enter concert facilities. The VSO has introduced a new app to support touchless digital tickets. The app is freely available in Apple and Android app stores.
