The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra opened its 100th season with a deserved jubilant celebration. The Orpheum even opened its rarely used main entrance on Granville Street to welcome specially invited patrons. Immediately following the customary playing of O Canada (performed at all VSO season openers), newly appointed music director Maestro Otto Tausk promised a repertoire that honoured the orchestra’s past, present and future.
