THE VANCOUVER SYMPHONY ORCHESTRAL INSTITUTE AT WHISTLER will offer students, a once-in-a-lifetime, comprehensive, and nurturing orchestral training program. Our faculty is comprised of musicians from the renowned Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of VSO Music Director, Maestro Bramwell Tovey.
Musical opportunities will abound, as all of our students play in the Whistler Institute Orchestra, rehearse and perform in chamber ensembles, and participate in masterclasses and repertoire classes with our outstanding faculty. The VSOIW offers fantastic performance opportunities including student and faculty recitals, a concerto competition, as well as chamber music performances throughout Whistler Village and mountain-top on Whistler Blackcomb. The entire Vancouver Symphony Orchestra is in residence during the VSOIW for a series of concerts at Whistler Olympic Plaza. Students can observe rehearsals from a seat on-stage and enjoy relaxing concerts after a great day of music making. The VSOIW will culminate with two performances by the Whistler Institute Orchestra. First, we will perform on stage at Whistler Olympic Plaza, then, following our residency in Whistler, the orchestra will travel to Vancouver for a performance at the beautiful Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia.
The VSO is grateful for the partnership with the Resort Municipality of Whistler.
