Nicholas Wright was a member of the orchestra as a teenager and is now Concertmaster of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. He will join us in October to play the dazzling Prokofiev concerto and also to lead the orchestra in Strauss’s enormous showpiece Ein Heldenleben.

The orchestra concludes its extended journey through the major symphonic works of Jean Sibelius with his last symphony. A wonderful start to the orchestra’s 40th concert season.

Please note that whilst we will endeavour to perform the concert as shown, the orchestra reserve the right to amend the concert programme, soloist and ticket pricing should circumstances require.
