The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra continues its 42nd season with live streamed performances that will feature critically acclaimed guest conductor Maestra Sarah Ioannides of Symphony Tacoma. The concert will highlight the extraordinary talents of the 2019-2020 VSO Young Artist Competition Gold Medalists who were selected in three categories: Ben Price in the winds/brass category, Hanami Froom in the strings category and Jacob Nenow in the piano category. Price will perform Oboe Concerto in A Minor 1st and 3rd Movements by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Froom will perform Chaconne for Violin and String Orchestra by Tomaso Vitali and Nenow will perform Piano Concerto in D Major 1st Movement by J.S. Bach. Other pieces performed by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in this program will include Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, a passionate and sorrowful work that has become synonymous in popular culture with heartbreak, and Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony, an expressive, inventive work based on pieces the composer wrote in his childhood. The January 16 and 17 performances will feature a reduced orchestra and will be streamed live from Skyview Concert Hall without an in-person audience (in accordance with Washington State’s current guidelines). The broadcast on Saturday, January 16 will begin at 6:30pm with the fourth installment of the celebrated VSO pre-concert show Da Capo, hosted by VSO Podcast host Ashley Hall and VSO trombonist Greg Scholl. Intermission will feature special, not-to-be-missed interviews. The performance and the show on Sunday, January 17 will also be streamed live and will begin at 2:30pm. Michelle’s Piano Co. is kindly providing a piano for the performances.
