FINAL PERFORMANCE OF THE SEASON!
Through the Lions Gate
Special guests: Pandora’s Vox and Pro Arté Centre Dancers
Saturday, April 11, 2015 at 7:30pm
Like the magnificence of the twin peaks, we offer a program showcasing two pillars of our artistic community: Pandora’s Vox offers majestic and moving melodies by Beethoven, Fauré, John Lennon and others, and Pro Arté Centre Dancers transport us with selections from Tchaikovsky’s resplendent Swan Lake. Of course we could not have a year without our dear friend and composer, Michael Conway Baker, who brings our season to an end with two compositions.

2015-2016 Season is Here!
Join us for five fantastic performances at one great price.
Saturday, October 10, 2015 (7:30pm)
Our season opens with an extraordinary range of talent and music featuring our favourite pianist Ian Parker, as well as hand-picked pianists from the studios of the North Shore Registered Music Teachers Association. Ian performs one of Beethoven’s most original and imaginative statements for piano and orchestra, his fourth piano concerto. Also on the program is Bach’s thunderous and virtuosic Toccata and Fugue and D minor.
The Magic Flute
Saturday, November 7, 2015 (7:30pm)
Sarah Jackson, Principal Piccolo for the world-famous Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Brenda Fedoruk, our very own Principal Flutist, are joined by the 20-member Capilano Flute Choir for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. On the program is Bach’s Orchestral Suite in B minor and a concerto for two flutes by Telemann. Of course, how could we not include Mozart’s overture to The Magic Flute?
A Very Sinfonia Family Christmas
Saturday, December 19, 2015 (7:30pm)
Join us for a special season event featuring Monique Creber and Family. The much-loved and admired mother-father-daughter triple threat will share their talent and love of music in a program of seasonal, sacred and secular selections, ranging from Handel’s beloved Messiah to a medley of family hits.
East meets West
Saturday, February 27, 2016 (7:30pm)
This concert promises to be one of our most innovative and distinctive collaborations. Representing the East is Vancouver’s Pars National Ballet and Hossein Behroozinia, the renowned player of the barbat and lauded by the L.A. Times for his “spectacular musicianship.” Representing the West is our Principal Horn player Duncan Shaw, who performs Vaughan Williams’ English Folk Songs and Canadian composer Keith Bissel’s Under the Apple Boughs, which was inspired by folk music, Dylan Thomas’ poems, and our vast Canadian landscapes.
Majesty and Meditation
Saturday, April 23, 2016 (7:30pm)
To close the season, VSO Principal Cellist Ariel Barnes joins our concertmaster Andrea Siradze in a performance of Brahms’ exquisite Double Concerto for violin and cello. A work of this majesty finds its perfect match with Dvořák’s uplifting and stirring “New World” Symphony. Balancing these grand musical statements is the gorgeous “Meditation” from Thaïs and Ernst Bloch’s soulful Prayer.
