The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Chamber Orchestra
    2014-15 VSO Chamber Music Series to be hosted by Vancouver's Historic Kiggins Theatre

Once again the Kiggins Theatre, located at 1011 Main Street in downtown Vancouver will host The VSO's Chamber Music Series. The VSO Chamber Music Series is under the direction of VSO pianist Dr. Michael C. Liu, with the collaboration of renowned pianist, Cary Lewis.

The collaboration with Kiggins is part of the city's effort to revitalize downtown Vancouver. The theater is operated by Dan Wyatt, also the owner of downtown soda shop Pop Culture, an Uptown Village venue that also features live music nights and movie nights, and showcases local artwork. Wyatt became the Kiggins' new owner in 2012.


Immediately following each concert, a food and drink reception will be held next door to the theatre at Niche – a wine and art bar, which is open to all concert attendees.

March 8, 2015:   Family Concert


The tulips are rising and Spring is almost here. What a great time for The VSO Chamber Series’ annual Family Concert. On March 8, we proudly present Brass on the Loose, a lighthearted and fun introduction to the brass family of instruments by some of the area’s most renowned brass musicians. Also on the same program is Opera Quest Northwest, a group of five young singers and a pianist bringing a live program called “Opera the Great” to the Kiggins. Opera Quest Northwest is a nonprofit group dedicated to bringing the world of opera to school-age children.


The Columbia River Brass are David Conditt, trombone; Allan Stromquist, horn; Douglas Peebles, bass trombone; Scott Winks, trumpet; and Bruce Dunn, trumpet.


The members of The Columbia River Brass are David Conditt, trombone; Allan Stromquist, horn; Douglas Peebles, bass trombone; Scott Winks, trumpet; and Bruce Dunn, trumpet.


The sprightly brass repertoire will include music from the Piccolo trumpet, trumpet, flugelhorn, French horn, trombone and bass trombone. Among the songs featured will be John Stanley's Trumpet Voluntary, Bernstein's West Side Story, Alexander Goedicke’s Concert etude for Trumpet, Mozart’s Rondo for Horn, Debussy's Girl With the Flaxen Hair and a crowd-pleasing version of Tiger Rag (featuring Doug Peebles on the swingin' Bass Trombone).


"Opera the Great" blends beautiful opera excerpts with a humorous, interactive script. It's educational — children learn opera history, characters, voice parts and famous melodies — and also great fun. Young audience members get to try out opera gestures and singing styles, become part of the chorus, and even come onstage as opera characters. The show has delighted thousands of elementary school students throughout Clark County, and now you and your kids and grandkids have a chance to see it.


The cast includes baritone Bruce Kyte as the Buffo (funny guy); bass Patrick Scofield as the Villain; soprano Amy Cole and tenor David Warner as the star-crossed Young Lovers; mezzo ChristyAnne Ford doing double-duty as a Young Man and Carmen; and pianist Kate Hobbie as the Orchestra.
