Make your Canada Day long weekend a musical one, as Music Director Bramwell Tovey conducts the VSO’s annual pair of concerts in the breathtaking outdoor setting of Whistler. 

This free concert kicks off with the effervescent Overture to Candide to mark Leonard Bernstein’s centenary. The pastoral and beautiful work The Lark Ascending, by Ralph Vaughan Williams, is a showpiece for VSO Concertmaster Nicholas Wright. Completing the program is Tchaikovsky’s stirring Symphony No. 4, a fate-filled work that end in a blaze of celebration.
