25 Years of Keeping Music Live
on Vancouver Island
Classical & Casual is more than a simple brand or catch phrase for the Vancouver Island Symphony. 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!
