The VSO’s School of Music is driven by its mission enrich lives through the joy of learning, playing and performing the world’s great music; to make these experiences accessible to all, regardless of age ability, playing level or economic circumstances; and to nurture creative and engaged members of society through achievement in musical arts. The only music school founded and managed by a major symphony orchestra, the VSO School of Music opened in 2011 as a cultural amenity site for the City of Vancouver. The VSO and the SoM are driven by a central vision and active collaboration with the professional musicians and resources of the VSO remains one of the greatest unique value propositions for students of the school.
