The Artist's Corner: Get close to key figures of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and VSO School of Music, as musicians, leaders and educators talk about what goes on behind the music in this series of fascinatingly intimate lunchtime presentations. Lunch is included.

Featuring Rosemary O’Connor; AK Coope; Heather Hay; and Yuel Yawney

Messiaen described his Quartet for the End of Time as “ Rhythms, modes, rainbows and bridges to the beyond, cast into sonorous space”. Experience the performance and hear the incredible story surrounding its creation and first performance in 1941 in a prisoner-of-war camp, as well as insight into the compositional techniques used.
