VSO performs at Deer Lake Park Sunday

For the 26th year, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will perform a free concert at Burnaby's Deer Lake Park on Sunday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Under the direction of conductor Gordon Gerrard, the VSO will perform popular classics including Johann Straus II’s Die Fledermaus: Overture, Raiders of the Lost Ark: March from Indiana Jones by John Williams’, and Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

Each year, the concert features a young up-and-coming musician. This year the featured soloist will be 17-year-old violinist Lucy Wang who began studying the instrument at age three and made her solo debut in February playing with the VSO.

She is currently concertmaster of the Semiahmoo Strings Youth Orchestra, an elite group of advanced string players.
