Pre-Concert Chat at 6:30 pm
250 years after his birth, Beethoven still stands as one of the greatest creative minds in history; his revolutionary Eroica Symphony ushered classical music into a new era, while the Triple Concerto remains one of the only examples of its kind. This concert truly features all facets of Beethoven – strength and power, but also elegance, nostalgia, clarity and most of all – pure joy!
Under the artistic direction of our noted conductor, Pierre Simard, the Vancouver Island Symphony is a professional Canadian orchestra – one of only two on Vancouver Island. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2019-2020, the VIS presents an annual season of world-class orchestral performances at the beautiful harbour setting of Nanaimo’s Port Theatre. In addition the VIS performs three one hour concerts, Symphony at the Sid at the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay and a series of two concerts at Campbell River’s Tidemark Theatre.
