Dear Friends

After November 21st, we will begin selling subscriptions for the remaining concerts in 2022. As most of you know probably know by now, Vancouver is the only North American city to be included in the prize winner’s international tour of Bruce (Xiaoyu) Liu, our Canadian gold medalist and audience favourite at the 18th International Chopin Competition. This special recital will take place on Sunday, February 20th, at 2:00 p.m., at UBC’s Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.

The remainder of the season are no less spectacular – recitals by Rafal Blechacz, gold medalist of the 2005 Chopin Competition (Tuesday, April 5th, 7:30 p.m. at the Vancouver Playhouse), and Eric Lu, a prizewinner at the 2015 Chopin Competition as well as gold medalist of the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition (Sunday, May 22nd, 3:00 p.m. at the Vancouver Playhouse).

For non-subscribers, individual tickets for the 2022 concerts will be available for purchase after December 15th.

For the three concerts in 2022, we will be selling tickets at 75% of the hall’s capacity, as we realized that some of our audience members may not yet be comfortable with a full capacity hall. The orchestra section of the Chan Centre and the Vancouver Playhouse will be sold at 100% capacity, but the seats in the parterre of the Chan Centre and the balcony of the Vancouver Playhouse will be sold at 50% capacity.

Please indicate your preference when calling us to purchase tickets. We will try our best to accommodate your comfort level. For your information, here is a link to a chart for the seating layout at the Chan Centre.

To order subscriptions, please call The Vancouver Chopin Society at 604-871-4450, your calls will be returned as soon as possible. You can also text us at our ticket hotline at 236-878-4056, and we will return your call as soon as possible.

We know that you wouldn’t want to miss any of the three concerts in 2022. We look forward to seeing you at all our concerts.

Patrick May, President
