TALK Special Event: Meet VSO Maestro Bramwell Tovey
On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, TALK offers an unusual opportunity on Kwantlen's Surrey campus: We are excited and honoured to welcome Bramwell Tovey, Music Director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. The Maestro will reveal some of the secrets behind the music as he leads the audience through a typical day at the VSO. Online registration for this special event is now open through the Membership Application and Course Registration page. (Click on that link in the red navigation area at left or go to the Register Now "button" by clicking here.) If you love music, don't miss this chance to see and hear this world-renowned and accomplished conductor and composer, who has been at the helm of the VSO since 2000.
