The VSO is embarking on a Central Canada Tour in May 2018—a tour to celebrate Maestro Tovey’s 18 years as Music Director of the Vancouver Symphony—the longest serving Music Director in the organizations 99-year history. Bramwell has made an indelible impression on Canada’s arts scene from sharing his passion with orchestras and audiences alike; promoting the creation of new Canadian works; advocating gender equality in our business; ins...isting on greater music education in schools—and that’s just the tip of the iceberg when we look at his tremendous legacy.
Bramwell has invited Canada’s foremost violinist, James Ehnes, to join the VSO on tour. Bramwell and James have a very special relationship since meeting in Winnipeg when James was only 11 years of age. Bramwell saw an incredible talent in this young violinist and became his mentor—a relationship that continues to this day. In fact, it was the recording of James Ehnes performing the Walton, Korngold and Barber Violin Concerti with the VSO under the leadership of Maestro Tovey that won both a GRAMMY and a JUNO award in 2008—a very special and defining moment in the VSO’s history.
Maestro Tovey has also invited the renowned BC soprano Marion Newman to join the tour. The program will include a new work by Maestro Tovey, “Ancestral Voices”. Written especially for Ms. Newman, it is a deeply personal narrative to Ms. Newman as a BC First Nations woman; it speaks to reconciliation in honor of Canada’s 150th Celebration in 2017.
