Important Note

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, and an excerpt from The Snowman. Free to ticketholders.

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.
