VSO - Surrey Nights: Mendelssohn, Britten and a Surprising New Talent

Mendelssohn, Britten

A concert of firsts: thirteen year-old Alma Deutscher, a prodigy in the style of Mozart, wrote her first sonata at age seven and her first concerto at age twelve. Mendelssohn was no slouch, playing his first concert at age nine. Canadian-born Stanley Dodds became the first member of the Berlin Philharmonic of Chinese descent. He now splits his duties between Principal Conductor of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, and playing second fiddle with the Phil — literally!

Join us in the Bell Centre Lobby at 7:00pm for a very special prelude concert with Fleetwood Park Secondary.

The Surrey Nights Series is endowed by a generous gift from WERNER AND HELGA HÖING.


AT THE DOOR: Please note, tickets are available at the door for cash only for Surrey Nights concerts starting at 7pm. Online sales end at 4pm on concert days
