  • Virtually VRS - YCAT series

The VRS has joined forces with Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) to present a new series of four online concerts, highlighting some of the extraordinary young artists they’ve represented and nurtured.

These performances are possible because of the generous support of friends like you. Artists and organizations all around the world have been hard hit by the impacts of COVID-19, and online presentations like these provide vital opportunities for musicians to continue to make a living, share their craft, and delight audiences. The VRS takes great pride in presenting outstanding emerging artists, and we rely on the support of our wonderful patrons to help to keep the music playing, both online and in the concert hall.  If you’d like to support the VRS by making a tax-deductible donation, you can do so by clicking the button below, or you can mail your gift to our office (201 – 513 Main Street, Vancouver, BC, V6A 2V1). Donations over $10 are eligible for a charitable receipt. Thank you; your faith in us means the world!
