Arrive early on December 1st for a special performance by the VSO School of Music's Sinfonietta Advanced Strings Ensemble on the Orpheum stage at 7:00pm. The Sinfonietta ensemble will be playing selections from Christoph Graupner, Sibelius (conducted by Otto Tausk), and an excerpt from The Snowman featuring boy soprano Andreas Dala. Free to ticketholders. Don't miss this special event!
Maestro Tausk’s first Musically Speaking concert as Music Director kicks off in a unique way, with a focus entirely on the VSO’s brilliant brass section in two sacred works by the Baroque composer Gabrieli.
Magnificent violinist Baiba Skride then takes the stage for Gubaidulina’s mesmerizing Violin Concerto, before the concert concludes with Tchaikovsky’s fateful final symphony.
This concert is also playing in North Vancouver at the Centennial Theatre (Thursday, Nov 29) and in Surrey at the Bell Performing Arts Centre (Friday, Nov 30.)
