Vancouver Symphony Orchestra

OUR FOREMOST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

MAESTRO BRAMWELL TOVEY

One of Canada’s most active and successful performing arts institutions, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra celebrates its 99th season in 2017–18. Led by Music Director Bramwell Tovey, the VSO performs over 150 concerts per season to more than 260,000 people at the historic Orpheum downtown and throughout the Lower Mainland. Through the VSO School of Music, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestral Institute at Whistler, and extensive education and community programs, the VSO reaches over 50,000 children each year. This fall, the orchestra tours B.C.’s Southern Interior and will visit Winnipeg, Ottawa, and Toronto in May 2018.

The VSO welcomes Music Director Designate Otto Tausk for two sets of concerts in October and January, setting the stage for next season when the Dutch-born maestro will preside over the orchestra’s 100th anniversary!

Throughout 2017–18, the VSO will mark the extraordinary contributions that Bramwell Tovey has made over the course of the past 18 years. Tovey is acknowledged around the world for his artistic depth and his charismatic personality on the podium. Circle the date, May 31, 2018, for a not-to-be-missed gala concert that will celebrate Maestro Tovey’s tenure as the longest serving music director in the orchestra’s 99-year history.
