HAMPTON ROADS, VA [January 14, 2020] Join the Virginia Symphony Orchestra for an intimate evening of music, spirits and mingling Thursday, January 23, 2020 at 5:00PM at Copper Fox Distillery in Williamsburg.

Internationally renowned Scottish conductor Douglas Boyd joins a VSO Brass Quintet for a unique sensory experience. Excerpts from Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique will be followed by an informative Q&A. Your ticket also includes a selection of whisky tastings from Copper Fox, as well as a delicious craft cocktail and light appetizers. This event is a unique opportunity to meet and socialize with our guest conductor and VSO musicians!

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!
