“In a curious way the fact that we have been separated from our audiences over the past 10 months has in fact, brought us closer together — through weekly e-newsletters which contain stories, and Zoom conversations with musicians and VRS friends from all over the world.

“As young talent is in the DNA of the VRS, we have filmed performances by two young B.C. pianists, and in the first quarter of 2021 we shall curate a series of concerts, filmed in London, for the VRS by young artists over there on whom we have our eyes and ears. These are gifts of gratitude for our family of supporters.”

The last word goes to Otto Tausk, music director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

“I am very optimistic that we can do big symphonic repertoire again for live audiences during the next year. We will share the unique experience of rediscovering the sound of 70 musicians performing together in perfect synchronicity!” he said.

“And there will be much Mozart. We will launch 2021 with a month of Mozart that I think you will very much enjoy. I hope that we continue to record and stream. Even in normal times many people cannot make it to the concert hall. We intend to maintain this new connection.

“Gelukkig Nieuwjaar!”
