These are imperfect times. It takes courage, imagination, and sheer determination to navigate this new world.  The VSO and VSO School of Music are steadfastly committed to keeping the music alive and thriving.  

On February 18, 2021 we invite you to join us for the VSO’s Gala Concert: The Show Must Go On: Stories of Resilience.  

This is no ordinary Virtual Gala Concert – this is a once in a lifetime experience not be missed.  

Join host Steve Maddock, Maestro Otto Tausk, and the musicians of the VSO for an evening of music and stories. With special guest virtual appearances and stories of resilience from James Ehnes, Itzhak Perlman, Measha Brueggergosman, k.d. lang, Geddy Lee, Steven Page, Jens Lindemann, Stewart Goodyear, Bria Skonberg, Red Robinson, and more. Stories you never get to hear - the missed flight; the story behind the story of the delayed start; the imposter Maestro; what the VSO did when Queen Latifah became ill two days before she was to appear with the VSO; stories of intrigue and mystery - all accompanied by inspiring music, amazing food, wine and ambiance – in the comfort and safety of your own home.  

This special gala benefit concert in support of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra requires a virtual ticket to view. subscriptions do not provide access.

Please note: Special guests are appearing virtually to share their support for music, resilience in the arts, and the VSO in this benefit event. They will not be performing with the VSO.

See you in this February 18.

Thank you to our sponsors!
