UApresents: Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
Making music since 1919, they are one of Canada’s most successful performing arts institutions. Eighty-eight musicians strong, the VSO performs to an annual audience of more than 200,000 and features more than 50 celebrated guest artists each season. Regarding Jon Kimura Parker, the Seattle Times raved, "Parker gave a performance that was so fresh, so scintillating and so technically dazzling that the only possible response was a standing ovation." This performance of Grieg’s majestic "Piano Concerto," the only concerto Grieg completed and among the most popular of all piano concerti, is certain to be a highlight of this classical season.
