The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is delighted to welcome the Juno and Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum award-winning singer and songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen for a single, not-to-be-missed performance of her music, accompanied by the VSO and conductor Lucas Waldin at the Orpheum theatre. To the delight of Ms Jepsen’s fans and VSO buffs alike, the evening includes orchestral arrangements of some of the artist’s greatest hits, including songs from her critically acclaimed album E•MO•TION.
The VSO concert marks something of a homecoming for Carly Rae Jepsen. She was born in Mission, BC, where she was exposed to music at a very young age, listening to artists such as Leonard Cohen and Van Morrison. She also developed a passion for musical theatre, later attending the Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, BC, where she immersed herself in all things music and dance.
