The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra opens its 39th season with the return of international violin virtuoso Anne Akiko Meyers under the baton of Maestro Brotons at Skyview Concert Hall Saturday, Sept 30 at 3pm & Sunday, Oct 1 at 7pm. Anne has toured extensively for three decades and was the top-selling traditional classical instrumental soloist on Billboard charts in 2014.
What the world needs now, Igor Shakhman said, is “an unforgettable, transformational experience.”
“World-class is what we need to be, every time,” Shakhman said. “When I feel magic onstage, and I look out and see a sold-out house, I know we’re achieving our goal.”
You can enjoy a free sample of that transformational magic on Thursday evening in Esther Short Park, as the group is led through a people-pleasing program by maestro Don Appert, an award-winning conductor-composer and head of the Clark College music department.
