The VSO’s 101st Season opens with Canadian international diva Adrianne Pieczonka singing Schubert’s orchestrated lieder including Der Erlkönig (The Elf King) paired with Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 Titan — the Symphony that “changed the genre forever” (The Guardian). Maestro Tausk starts with a new work commissioned from Juno-nominated Bekah Simms, a fresh and brilliant Canadian talent, to open the season. Join us for a pre-concert chat at 7:00pm at the Orpheum.
