We are thrilled to announce the Vancouver Chamber Music Society’s (VCMS) return to the beautiful Anvil Centre. Well-loved for their intimate classical music encounters, capacity restrictions due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic will not hinder but enhance audience experience.
The Vancouver Chamber Music Society is the leading presenter in western Canada of high calibre chamber music featuring world-renowned chamber ensembles, and solo and recital artists. Their program, steeped in the rich tradition of classical music, paired with the state-of-the-art modern Anvil Centre theatre perfectly represent the old-meets-new vibe of New Westminster’s growing cultural and commercial hub.
Handpicked for this performance are some of Canada’s top chamber players. These musicians boast accolades locally and internationally. Vancouver Chamber Music Society (VCMS) brings together Jenny Lim and Jaewon Bang (violin), Emilie Grimes (viola), and Lee Duckles and Jonathon Lo (cello) to present Schubert’s masterpiece.
VCMS wraps up 2020 with one of the most significant chamber compositions of the Romantic era. Often dubbed the “Cello Quintet” for the addition of a second cello, Schubert’s C Major string quintet reflects the culmination of his musical style. Completed just two months before his death, this work is generally regarded as the composer's finest chamber work!
