"Water, water everywhere," wrote Coleridge in The Rime of the Ancient Mariner in 1797. It certainly is true here in the Northwest. Now, The Vancouver Symphony offers a musical tribute to the irreplaceable and ubiquitous liquid to begin its 36th "Season of Stars" on Saturday, October 4 and Sunday, October 5 at Skyview Concert Hall. Maestro Salvador Brotons begins his 24th consecutive season as music director and conductor.


"Since the beginning of time, musicians, artists and writers have been mesmerized by the romanticism of water," said Maestro Brotons. "Each composition is musically unique, but there is a common beauty and power that each of the four pieces possesses."


This concert is the initial offering of a season of six to be presented during the 2014-2015 season, and for the first time all will be conducted by Maestro Brotons. One of the highlights of these concerts will be the multimedia video presentation on the Skyview screens, in October featuring breathtaking footage of rivers and oceans in glorious high definition.


As it does every season, each concert will be preceded one hour before the start time by "Opening Notes" with VSO Principal Trombone Gregory Scholl. In his pre-concert talk, Mr. Scholl offers valuable insights into the music and its composers.
