The PGSO is excited to present the World Premiere of the St. Roch Suite, composed by Vancouverite Thomas Beckman who plays regularly with the PGSO. The St. Roch Overture was written in celebration of the 90th anniversary of the launching of the RCMP schooner that travelled the waters of the North West Passage. Enjoy a stunning visual accompaniment created by the BC Maritime Museum and Exploration Place staff, a poetic narrative by Vancouver poet Jude Neil, and choral accompaniment by our own Nove Voce.

Rounding out this unique presentation are three other sea-themed pieces: Selections from Water Music by Handel, Moldau by Smetana, and Pelleas and Melisande by Faure.
