Liu, the VSO pianist and board member, and Dr. Igor Shakhman, VSO Executive Director and Principal Clarinet, to present great musicians playing in a very intimate setting. The content of each concert is unique, and most of the participating musicians are members of The Vancouver Symphony.
Prices are $25 for adults and $10 for students. Save money with one of the ticket packages!
Join us for a full season of family concerts, incredible guest artists, and unparalleled musical artistry! All concerts begin at 3:00 pm.
Season Ticket Packages are available now! Why are the Chamber Series ticket packages such a good idea? Because they can be applied within this season any way you wish – share with friends (a concert party!) or enjoy multiple concerts on your own. Either way, you save money.
