West Coast Symphony
'Orchestra Solo Christmas'

Details

The West Coast Symphony Orchestra has an upcoming concert on Saturday December 10th from 8-10pm. Let's meet there at 7:15 so we can get seats together and get to know each other before the event starts at 8pm. Admission is by donation. Photo is of actual orchestra and venue. If you have never heard of the West Coast Orchestra they are like the 'farm team' to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. The musicianship is outstanding, the venue and acoustics are beautiful. I've set the 'limits' at 6 people so simply we can sit together as it is first come first serve tickets at the door by donation. Of course, any and all are invited. Below is a link to West Coasts website and I also made a Spotify playlist of their itinerary (to the best of my ability) +Update+ Tickets by donation can be purchased in advance here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/west-coast-symphony-orchestra-concert-tickets-468180328967 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0JDVaVCgB9gDhRZHvydLiM West Coast Website: http://westcoastsymphony.ca/concerts/ EVENT DETAILS Strauss Jr: Overture “The Gypsy Baron” Holst: A Fugal Concerto for Flute, Oboe and Strings Op. 40 No.2* Vaughan-Williams: 6 English Folksongs for Bassoon and Strings** Corelli: Concerto Grosso “Christmas” Gershwin: Piano Concerto No. 1 in F Major, 1st mov*** Bujar Llapaj, Conductor Kostas Tiliakos, Oboe* Carol Dymond, Flute* Cameron Engel, Bassoon** Owen Wang, Piano***

I've just added a link to purchase tickets by donation in advance. This is my suggestion as last time I went not everyone donating at the door got in. It was sold out.

I'll send you all a message asap when I confirm the time to meet out front. One of my closest friends wife is 1st violin (I believe she may be doing a solo as well) I sent her a message to confirm what time the doors open etc. When I hear back I'll let you know along with my number. Reminder to buy your ticket in advance with the above link. You may not get in if you wait to donate at the door. Online you can donate any amount you prefer. Thanks.
