At the Vancouver Playhouse
VSO School of Music: Strings & Jazzy Things
The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music’s four string ensembles and Honour Jazz Combo come together for a thrilling evening of strings and swing!
Sinfonietta will collaborate with the VSOSoM’s new Honour Jazz Combo to perform a unique symphonic arrangement of Bob Dylan’s The Times They Are A-Changin’, featuring rising star jazz vocalist Maya Rae. The Combo, made up of the lower mainland’s very brightest up-and-comers, will warm up a cold night with familiar standards and hot new works.
The audience will also be treated to rousing works by Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky and Piazzola, as well as Vivaldi’s Concerto for Four Violins, featuring Kai Chow, Catherine Teng, Britney Do and Da-Wei Chan. The night will end with everyone uniting for an uplifting rendition of Oscar Peterson’s Hymn to Freedom.
Tickets are just $19 and the event is for all ages, so reserve your seats for the whole family and join us to fill the hall for a very different kind of holiday spectacular this December!
This Oscar-nominated, magical animation for children will be screened as part of a family holiday concert in the Orpheum with the music performed LIVE by the VSO alongside the VSO School of Music...DEC 15
