Vetta Logo blue

To mark thirty wonderful years of magnificent chamber music, we have pulled out all the stops to make this a season to remember. Did you know that the Italian word Vetta (summit) refers to “the peak of excellence” and the two mountain peaks on our logo signify the two original Artistic Directors, Victor Costanzi and Eugene Osadchy? We are delighted to welcome them back to our newly refurbished stage and spend a little time reminiscing! In the second program we look forward to the future by presenting fresh young talent of the next generation. Francois Houle, clarinet and Jane Hayes, piano are back by popular demand, and no Vetta season would be complete without a string program- this year we play a brilliant Mozart quintet and the best sextet ever (Verklärte Nacht) with the best of B.C. talent. For our fifth set of concerts, we are commissioning an exciting and collaborative work that will be a West coast version of the Seasons Paired with Vivaldi’s popular Four Seasons, what better way is there to rejoice?  And don’t miss our special gala concert with Angela Cheng, pianist of international renown and our own Vetta Chamber Players at Christchurch Cathedral. We invite you to celebrate with us and help make this a season to remember!


Yours in Music,

Joan Blackman
