Vancouver Symphony Orchestra makes stop in Chilliwack

The VSO performs at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Tuesday, Oct. 3

The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra presents a five-city tour Sept. 28 to Oct. 3, with Chilliwack as one of the stops along the way.

Conducted by VSO music director, Bramwell Tovey, and featuring B.C.-born and internationally-acclaimed mezzo-soprano Marion Newman as soloist, the provincial tour is in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, and comes in the concluding year of Maestro Tovey’s 18 year-tenure as music director.

The repertoire will include Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, as well as a composition written by Maestro Tovey in conjunction with Newman, who is of Kwagiulth and Stó:lo heritage.

Bramwell Tovey’s Ancestral Voices is a setting of four diverse texts which shed light on the impact of Canada’s founding on First Nations.

The VSO is at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $25/youth, $35/senior, $40/adult and available at the Centre Box Office, by calling 604-391-SHOW (7469), or online at chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.
