A Traditional Christmas with the VSO

The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra spreads the Holiday Spirit throughout Metro Vancouver

Vancouver BC ĺ─ý What better way to get into the festive spirit than by attending Metro Vancouverĺ─˘s most beloved Holiday Music Tradition? Join VSO Assistant Conductor Evan Mitchell as he returns to lead the Orchestra in a celebration of Christmas, with carols, sing-a-longs, and selections from Handelĺ─˘s Messiah, Tchaikovskyĺ─˘s Nutcracker, and other Holiday favourites. Vancouverĺ─˘s very own Bard, Christopher Gaze, narrates, while two superb choirs, EnChor and UBC Opera Ensemble, provide accompaniment.

Christmas comes alive in fourteen performances that take place in six different communities across Metro Vancouver, including St. Andrewĺ─˘s Wesley Church in downtown Vancouver and venues in Burnaby (Michael J. Fox Theatre), South Delta (South Delta Baptist Church), Surrey (Bell Performing Arts Centre), North Vancouver (Centennial Theatre) and West Vancouver (Kay Meek Theatre).

The VSOĺ─˘s Traditional Christmas concerts have been a mainstay of the holiday season for several years and never fail to fill audiences with the joy of the season! Both afternoon and evening performances will be offered, which make wonderful gifts for family, friends, coworkers, and clients alike. Donĺ─˘t miss this opportunity to experience the true spirit of Christmas - tickets sell out very quickly, so get yours today!
