Conductor and Host

Grammy and Juno Award–winning conductor/composer Bramwell Tovey was appointed music director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO) in 2000. Under his leadership the VSO has toured to China, South Korea, the U.S., and across Canada. Mr. Tovey is also the artistic adviser of the VSO School of Music, a state-of-the-art facility and recital hall that opened in downtown Vancouver in 2011. His tenure has included complete symphonic cycles of works by Beethoven, Mahler, and Brahms, as well as the establishment of an annual festival dedicated to contemporary music. In 2018, the VSO’s centenary year, he will become the orchestra’s music director emeritus. 

Mr. Tovey’s 2015–16 season guest appearances include the Montreal, Melbourne, Pacific, and New Zealand symphony orchestras and The Philadelphia Orchestra and New York Philharmonic, reprising programs with the latter two at Bravo! Vail. The summer of 2016 also includes returns to the Blossom Music Center, Ravinia Festival, and Hollywood Bowl. In the winter of 2016 he conducted Korngold’s Die Tote Stadt with Calgary Opera. As a composer, Bramwell Tovey won the 2003 Juno Award for Best Classical Composition for his choral and brass work Requiem for a Charred Skull, and he has received commissions from the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Toronto Symphony, and Calgary Opera, which premiered his first full-length opera, The Inventor, in 2011. A recording of the work by the VSO with the University of British Columbia Opera and the original cast was made for Naxos and will be released this season. In 2014 his trumpet concerto, Songs of the Paradise Saloon, was performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Alison Balsom as soloist, who performed the work again with The Philadelphia Orchestra in December 2014. Bramwell Tovey has appeared as piano soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Royal Scottish Orchestra, and the Sydney, Melbourne, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Toronto symphony orchestras. In the summer of 2014 he played and conducted Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue at the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and in Saratoga with The Philadelphia Orchestra. He has performed his own Pictures in the Smoke with the Melbourne and Helsingborg Symphony Orchestras and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
