GREETINGS FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

What a thrill and honour to lead the Vancouver Island Symphony, on the occasion of its 25th Anniversary Season. More than ever, we remain true to our belief that music - of all kinds and all eras - belongs to everyone. For us, Classical & Casual is more than a simple brand or catch phrase. It’s a way of performing, bringing live music to Nanaimo and beyond, without boundaries but with plenty of enthusiasm, passion, commitment and talent! Attending a VIS concert is also one of the best possible ways to relieve daily life stresses. Live music has a transforming, transporting, transcending power - an experience which brings comfort, happiness, social interaction, a sense of belonging… an escape unlike any other form of entertainment.

Enjoy great performances of great works by great composers! Dvorak, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Johann Strauss, Gershwin… breathtaking and groundbreaking, bold new pieces by Nett, Gimon, Louie, Bergmann… spectacular concertos, novelties and discoveries… this will be a musical celebration not to be missed! Happy 25th to all!
