The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra announces its Second Annual Distinguished Speaker Series fundraising luncheon featuring special guest Maestro Salvador Brotons and internationally acclaimed Principal Trombonist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, David Rejano.

All Classical Portland Radio 89.9 FM’s Matt Rogers will lead the discussion that explores the positive impact music and other arts have in local populations, the relevance, roles and responsibilities of a cultural community and the importance of building arts-based neighborhoods.

“Maestro Brotons is in his 27th year as a Music Director and Conductor of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and we are thrilled to have this unique opportunity to learn from his experience of being a part of this great community for nearly three decades,” says VSO Executive Director, Igor Shakhman.
