The VSO presents the 16th Edition of the Jean Coulthard Readings
Jean Coulthard Readings

Wednesday, March 16, 2022, 10:00am – 1:00pm | Orpheum Theatre, Vancouver

The VSO’s Jean Coulthard Readings will showcase exciting new works by emerging composers – Antony Knight, Athena Loredo, Peter Krejcar, Nicholas Marriott, Francis Sadleir and Leif Jack – in an orchestral reading session that is free and open to the public.

Named for one of BC’s most influential and beloved composers, the readings provide an invaluable opportunity for young composers to have new works played by a professional orchestra. Taking place on March 16 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Orpheum Theatre, the session offers the public a chance to witness the kinetic process of orchestral music creation.

Participating composers are selected by a jury, and are mentored by a VSO Composer Advisor. The VSO looks forward to working with a new batch of emerging composers and showcasing their works.

During the 3-hour session, each of the 6 composers will hear their scores rehearsed and performed for the very first time.
