Vancouver Chamber Choir
Stephen Smith, piano
Five guest conductors

The annual National Conductors’ Symposium concert is a favourite with our regular concert-goers and first-timers, too, as five talented young conductors from all over the continent get their first chance to pilot the professional choir. Their Master Conductor for the week, Jon Washburn, conducts as well and Stephen Smith is the pianist. The music this year is all-Canadian, ranging from the old masters to the latest young stars.
