Piano Extravaganza

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 will perform Grieg's Concerto, one of the most popular piano concertos. This piece will grip the audiences imagination, with its crashing opening chords and its wild and inventive melodies. 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, is 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)

Come celebrate with Lions Gate Sinfonia at this festive family concert, guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit! Pianist Michael Creber along with special guest vocalists Monique Creber, Michelle Creber and Gabriel Brown will join the orchestra for a programme of beloved seasonal songs both sacred and secular, including favourites such as the music of the Carpenters, selections from A Charlie Brown Christmas, Frozen and more. Other guests include vocalists Natalie Sharp, Joani Bye, Gordon Maxwell, Cypress Singers and Pro Arte dancers.


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.
