Internationally renowned Scottish conductor Douglas Boyd joins a VSO Brass Quintet for a unique sensory experience.

The VSO Brass Quintet will feature David Vonderheide, principal trumpet; Adam Gandolfo, trumpet; Jacob Wilder, principal horn; Tanner Antonetti, trombone; and Adam Robles, tuba.

Douglas Boyd enjoyed a stellar career as a world-renowned oboist – including as a founder member and principal oboist of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe – before stepping away after 21 years to begin an international career as conductor. Currently, Boyd is Music Director of the L’Orchestre de Chambre de Paris as well as Artistic Director of the Buckinghamshire’s summer opera festival, Garsington Opera, in England. Boyd has conducted all the BBC Orchestras, as well as orchestras throughout Europe, Australia, and the United States.

In recent years he has also held the positions of Chief Conductor of the Musikkollegium Winterthur, Music Director of Manchester Camerata, Principal Guest Conductor of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Artistic Partner of St Paul Chamber Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of City of London Sinfonia.

His regular North American appearances have included concerts with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra, Baltimore, Colorado, Dallas, Detroit, Indianapolis, Pacific and Seattle Symphony Orchestras.  In Canada he has appeared with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and National Arts Orchestra in Ottawa.

This will be an unforgettable evening of fine music, spirits and fellowship!  We hope to see you there!
