VPO and the COVID-19 Pandemic
Like many arts organizations, the Vancouver Philharmonic Orchestra was brought to a halt in March 2020 due to the onset of the covid-19 pandemic. The remainder of the 2019-20 season was cancelled and we were not able to resume programming in the 2020-21 season. The desire to make music continued, however, and the VPO musicians came together virtually to perform Edward Elgar’s Nimrod. We were fortunate to have access to our Music Director, Jin Zhang’s professional music editing skills to produce this unique project never before attempted in VPO’s history. Please enjoy our special project that brought our community together in difficult times through the joy of music.
