To celebrate both the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, as well as to mark the 50th anniversary of EMV, and the 30th anniversary of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, this performance is designed to evoke the excitement surrounding the debut of Beethoven’s first symphony on April 2, 1800 in Vienna. This will involve the largest-scale period instrument orchestra ever assembled in Vancouver and will demonstrate the extent to which the regional period instrument scene has grown and flourished on the West Coast in recent years. In addition to Beethoven’s  Symphony No. 1, the programme will also include Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G minor and the Gloria from  Haydn’s Creation Mass with the participation of the Vancouver Bach Choir, Vancouver Chamber Choir, and Vancouver Cantata Singers. The concert will be hosted by CBC Radio’s Sheryl MacKay of North by Northwest

Date: April 5, 2020 at 3:00PM (Pre-concert talk at 2:15PM)

Venue: Chan Shun Concert Hall at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, 6265 Crescent Rd, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z1
