The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Continues its 42nd Season With Francesco Lecce-Chong and Adam Levin

The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra continues its 42nd season with live streamed performances featuring award winning Maestro Francesco Lecce-Chong and top prize winning classical guitar virtuoso Adam Levin. Maestro Lecce-Chong will lead the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in a remarkable program including magnificent Brooklyn-based Jessie Montgomery's beautiful and textural Strum for string orchestra, Grażyna Bacewicz's energetic Concerto for String Orchestra, and the charming Divertimento No. 1 in D Major by W.A. Mozart. Mr. Levin will perform two pieces for classical guitar: contemporary Spanish-American composer Leonardo Balada's Caprichos No. 1 for guitar and string orchestra, Balada's brilliant homage to Federico Garcia Lorca and Joaquin Turina's traditional Spanish work Fantasia-Sevillana for solo guitar.

Recognized for his dynamic performances, fresh programming and deep commitment to commissioning and performing new music, Maestro Lecce-Chong is currently serving as the Music Director and conductor of Eugene and Santa Rosa Symphony Orchestras. He has appeared with orchestras around the world including the San Francisco Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Toronto Symphony, Hong Kong Philharmonic and many others.

Adam Levin, an internationally recognized instrumentalist and recording artist, has received several top prizes including Concurso Internacional de les Corts para Jóvenes Intérpretes in Barcelona, Concurso Internazionale Di Gargnano, and Certamen Internacional Luys Milan de Guitarra in Valencia. In 2010, his primary chamber ensemble Duo Sonidos was awarded first prize at the Luys Milán International Chamber Music Competition in Valencia, Spain.

The February 27 and 28 performances will feature a reduced orchestra and will be streamed live from Skyview Concert Hall without an in-person audience (in accordance with Washington State's guidelines for Phase 2). The broadcast on Saturday, February 27 will begin at 6:30pm with the fifth installment of the celebrated VSO pre-concert show Da Capo, hosted by VSO Podcast host Ashley Hall and VSO trombonist Greg Scholl.

Musicians will perform at an appropriate distance and wear face masks.

The size of the orchestra will be reduced to ensure appropriate distancing.
