VSO December Concert Listings


The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra presents a month to remember in December!

Vancouver BC The month of December brings great classics and holiday music to Vancouver audiences. Kicking off the month of December is violin virtuoso and Vancouver native, Corey Cerovsek, who will perform Sibeliuss Violin Concerto in D minor with great young conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto.

Next up is the Classical Mystery Tour, which combines the music of the legendary Beatles with the unrivaled sounds of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. In the lead-up to the Holidays is The Magical, Musical World of Vienna featuring guest conductor Jean-Marie Zeitouni, soprano Marianne Fiset and the delightful works of Strauss, Lehar and Brahms. A concert featuring works from the Musical City itself the perfect way to kick off the Holidays!

How could the holiday season be complete without the VSOs Traditional Christmas concerts? This year, they feature VSO Assistant Conductor Evan Mitchell and narrator Christopher Gaze. The VSO brings these fourteen performances filled with carols and heart-warming music to venues in Vancouver, Surrey, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and Burnaby. And just before the Traditional Christmas, the VSO sneaks in Tiny Tots: Holiday Hooray! For the little ones, toddlers to age four or five, this is the perfect holiday event, featuring Let Your Music Shine with Lisa and Linda, at the Playhouse Theatre in downtown Vancouver, and Terry Fox Theatre in Port Coquitlam.

Another great music tradition returns to the Chan Centre at UBC, and debuts in Massey Theatre in New Westminster: Concertmaster of the Bournemouth Symphony and chamber music specialist Duncan Riddell leads the orchestra in Vivaldis timeless classic Four Seasons.

Rounding out the holiday season is the spectacularly entertaining Bugs Bunny on Broadway! That Wascally Wabbit is back in a concert that features classic Warner Bros. cartoons on a large screen while the orchestra plays the soundtracks on stage. A family favourite sure to sell out!

With Christmas just around the corner, the VSO Flex-Pass is a great gift for your loved ones. Its the ultimate mix of savings and ticket buying flexibility the 4-pack is just $139 and the 8-pack is $228 and the perfect gift for any music lover! There is also the Symphony Sampler test drive the VSO with four tickets from fifteen specially selected concerts in the spring. Another great Holiday gift idea from the VSO!
