Vancouver Symphony Orchestra: Prokofiev
Skyview Concert Hall
1300 NW 139th Street
In May, The VSO proudly presents Sergei Prokofiev's masterpiece symphonic salute to the sainted Russian Prince Alexander Nevsky, declared the greatest hero in Russian history, by popular vote.
Prokofiev's cantata is taken from his 1938 cinematic work often referred to as the greatest film score in history.
A gigantic and bold vocal performance by our special guests the Oregon Repertory Singers guarantee a special and memorable concert. The ORS is an 80+ voice professional-calibre choir under the guidance of Dr. Ethan Sperry, Artistic Director. Nevsky also features guest artist, mezzo soprano Christine Meadows.
Also, on the program will be our 19th Annual Young Artists. In live audience competition judges selected three $1,000 cash prize Gold Medalists who will play their winning pieces for you.
