Love. Suspense. Drama.
These themes are heavily represented in our next VAMSO concert at the Orpheum on Sunday, February 23rd. But amidst the dark themes that these pieces explore, our concert is also a celebration of premieres – first we have Masquerade, a piece composed by our first Head of Composition, Edward Top. As well, VAM cello student Olivia Cho (and winner of the Kay Meek competition, the youngest person in the history of the competition) makes her concerto debut with Saint-Saens’ beautiful and ebullient Cello Concerto in A minor – can you believe this girl is only 12 years old? Finally, our Concertmaster Apprenticeship Program (CAP) is spotlighted with Scheherazade, featuring the first batch of students participating in this program under the tutelage of Dale Barltrop.
Don’t miss your chance to experience this exciting troop of musicians create their own footprints in VAM history. Buy your tickets today!
