Vancouver Recital Society

UNPARALLELED MUSIC IN INTIMATE RECITAL SETTINGS

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR LEILA GETZ

Vancouver Recital Society is one of the premier concert presenters in North America. Founded in 1980 by Leila Getz, VRS has earned a reputation for finding and presenting the next generation of classical superstars before they achieve fame. Celebrated musicians who have made their Canadian/Vancouver debuts with VRS include Cecilia Bartoli, Maxim Vengerov, Evgeny Kissin, Lang Lang, Anne Sofi e von Otter, Joshua Bell, and Bryn Terfel.

Over the years, VRS has built one of the most loyal audiences on the continent thanks to the quality of its concerts and willingness to take risks on presenting young, up-and-coming performers. The 2017–18 season will feature debuts of brilliant newcomers, such as the Verona Quartet, cellists Sheku Kanneh-Mason, and Edgar Moreau, and pianists Zhang Zuo, Schaghajegh Nosrati, and Yekwon Sunwoo (Gold Medalist at the 15th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition).

VRS also presents artists at their career heights— Yo-Yo Ma, Murray Perahia, and Yefi m Bronfman to name a few—along with a bevy of other well-known, prestigious artists from around the world. This season will feature the stellar talents of Yuja Wang, Sir András Schiff, Nicola Benedetti, and Paul Lewis.

I can’t believe the world-class talents that Leila brings. Every concert is a gem. —Vancouver Recital Society Patron
