COME CELEBRATE THE BLOSSOM AND THE BEAUTY!

The Vancouver Cherry Blossom festival has commissioned a new orchestral tone poem to commemorate Vancouver's 125th birthday. Inspired by the cherry tree, written by Toni Stanick and performed by the dazzling VIOLINPOWER Orchestra. "Blossom"  is our birthday gift to the City of Vancouver.

Come join VIOLINPOWER in a concert that will lift your spirits, dazzle and delight, and carry you away with the joyous outpouring of the budding brilliance of Vancouver's own young talent.

 

Back by very popular  and ever-growing demand, Edmund Chung violinist will perform the magnificent Brahms concerto, conceived in the Spring of 1878 and unfurling to completion in 3 short months it is a monumental work reaching the very peak of sprituality, the Bach Chaccone, a musical cathedral written after the death of his wife, this masterwork takes us on a journey to the depths of our soul, through loss, sorrow acceptance and finally the triumph of the spirit, and the Caprice #24 by Nicolo Paganini, a virtuosic display that will dazzle the senses as breath-taking as the sudden beauty of the cherry blossom.

Cellist Luke Kim will join Edmund for the stunning Handel-Halvorsen duo the Passacaglia, an icon of the string repertoire, it will amaze and inspire.
New to Canada the young and talented miss Angelica Yuan Chen will perform the solo work Diable, because there is no heaven without a little devil...........

VIOLINPOWER Orchestra will perform, Greensleeves and the world premiere of Blossom.

 

                               

                                     what audiences have said about VIOLINPOWER: 

 "The selection of music, the performance, the talented young musicians, their passion for beauty and music was all good for the soul"

   

VIOLINPOWER performs in true chamber-music fashion without conductor. Giving every performer the opportunity to lead, fuels the performance with a breath-taking quality of thrilling immediacy. With every member of the ensemble sitting on the edge of their seats, exchanging musical phrases, coming in and out of the texture, weaving harmony and dynamics,we create music that is truly alive!
