Ambleside Orchestra’s Season Opening Gala Concert, conducted by Nicolas Krusek, features West Vancouver’s 13-year-old guest pianist Augustin Wright. Celebrate music in our community with a wine reception and concert to raise funds for Ambleside Orchestra’s youth scholarship and orchestra development programs.

Augustin Wright will perform the first movement of Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, Opus16. The program also includes Antonín Dvořák’s well-loved Slavonic Dances, and Overture to a Fairy Tale, by Canadian composer Oskar Morawetz.

Ambleside’s musicians are all ages and come from all walks of like. The orchestra’s scholarships and awards program recognizes young members for their skills and contributions, and all members benefit from a mentorship partnership with the Vancouver Academy of Music.
