We hope to see you at our next concert on March 31: Rising Stars, featuring the young winners of our Solo Competition.

Tchaikovsky in America – in the Newspaper

IMG_3102Our Tchaikovsky in America concert is this Sunday, Jan. 27. The Chilliwack Progress wrote an article for us highlighting the concert. Go check it out here.

One note regarding the article if you have read it in the print edition of the Chilliwack Progress, is that it states that “Returning to perform… is Nancy DiNovo with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.” What was intended by that is that Nancy DiNovo is a member of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. It could be mistakenly taken to mean that the the VSO is performing with us at our concert, which is incorrect. The online version of the article has been re-worded, but the print edition will still have that mis-wording in there.

Thank you for your continued support of the CMO!
