Beloved VSO Conductor Laureate Kazuyoshi Akiyama — one of the VSO’s most important Music Directors – conducts this historic program, with pieces selected from his very first concerts as Music Director in 1972. Praised worldwide for her luxurious, silken tone and virtuosic technique, Mayuko Kamio and her 1727 Stradivarius violin are the perfect match for Mozart’s enchanting Violin Concerto No. 3.

This concert is also playing at the Centennial Theatre on May 16.

 

THE PRESENTATION OF THIS SERIES IS MADE POSSIBLE, IN PART, THROUGH THE GENEROUS ASSISTANCE OF THE CHAN ENDOWMENT FUND AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.
