The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra USA begins its 2022/23 season on September 24 and 25 with VSO Music Director and Conductor Maestro Salvador Brotons returning to the podium for his 32nd season. Internationally renowned virtuoso pianist Michelle Cann will join Maestro Brotons in a program including African American classical composer Florence Price’s Concerto for Piano in One Movement and George Gershwin’s timeless Rhapsody in Blue. This will be Ms. Cann’s debut with the VSO. The concert will begin with one of Mendelssohn’s best-known Overtures inspired by the composer’s 1829 trip to Fingal’s Cave on the island of Staffa, off the coast of Scotland. The final work on the program will be Tchaikovsky’s Suite No. 3, the best known of composer’s four orchestral suites.
