Congratulations to Maestro Salvador Brotons and the Vancouver Symphony!

At the May 18 meeting of the Vancouver City Council, I proposed a proclamation to honor this incredible musical artist and the orchestra he leads. The proclamation is timed to coincide with the Symphony's May concert.

On May 23 and 24, the Vancouver Symphony will present a "Salute to Salvador," in honor of his upcoming 50th birthday.

Maestro Salvador Brotons has been the orchestra's Music Director and Conductor for 18 years, and has been incredibly important to our city's cultural development and offerings. Through his efforts, and with the support of a dedicated board, staff and volunteer base, the Vancouver Symphony enriches the community with world-class performances.

This concert will feature Brotons' own "Catalanish Concerto," with special guests and music from his native Spain.

Concerts are at Skyview, 3pm Saturday 5/23 and 7pm Sunday 5/24. I'll be there -- will you?
