Music Director’s Message

Dear Music Lovers,

As Music Director of the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2017/18 season. We truly believe that this year’s musical offerings include something for everyone. You’ll hear familiar and much-loved orchestral works by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and Holst (The Planets) along with operatic favourites from Verdi, Rossini, and others. The orchestra is joined by a variety of wonderful professional soloists who will perform with us throughout the season.

I sincerely look forward to another season of music making with this wonderful group of fine and dedicated musicians, and to working with our Assistant Conductor, Al Cannon.

And to you, our loyal audience – I am very excited to welcome you back! Please share the news of our VPO season with your family, friends, and neighbors. Everyone is welcome to come join us and experience great music performed by a full symphony orchestra.

Jin Zhang, Music Director
Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra
