VAM Symphony Orchestra – The Planets

Join the Vancouver Academy of Music Symphony Orchestra for the season’s grand finale. The afternoon begins with Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, one of the most beloved pieces in the violin repertoire, featuring the incomparable Jonathan Crow, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster, taking center stage. The musical voyage continues beyond the earthly bounds as we embark on Holst’s magnificent ‘The Planets.’ This epic suite takes us through the mystique and allure of the solar system, with each movement offering a unique musical depiction of the planets’ astrological characters. Don’t miss this thrilling conclusion to our concert series, where the timeless beauty of Mendelssohn meets the majestic scale of Holst’s cosmos.
