The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
Although it now contains more than 75 musicians and a full calendar, The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra started much smaller. In the '70s, a group of talented locals bonded over their shared passion for classical music and got together to play for people who still appreciated Mozart despite his lack of leisure suit. Under the direction of Larry Hirtel they grew, and later joined forces with another small group of musicians under the direction of Walt Cleland. Today, they continue introducing residents to symphonic music thanks to frequent concerts and the conducting skills of Maestro Salvador Brotons.
