Founded in 1919, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra enriches Vancouver with interpretations of classical and popular music at 13 performance venues. Music lovers get to hear the sonorous synchronization of the VSO's musicians and conductors throughout a diverse schedule of performances, including pops concerts and celebrations of Bach and Haydn. An army of woodwinds, strings, and brass joins forces with special guest musicians throughout May, including violinist Augustin Hadelich tackling Sibelius on May 1 and 2 and pianist Alessio Bax interpreting Mozart on May 7 and 9. Most shows take place at the VSO's home in the historic Orpheum Theatre, a former vaudeville house and designated National Heritage Site where many a prime minister got a start in ventriloquism.
Groupon customers will receive A section seats at the Orpheum Theatre, orchestra seats at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts and Centennial Theatre, and general admission seats at the Roundhouse Community Centre.
