Upcoming Programs for the Public

VC2 Cello Duo
VC2 Cello Duo Concert

VC2 is an innovative cello duo able to captivate audiences through their performances of classical masterworks, unknown gems and boundary pushing music. Comprised of cellists Amahl Arulanandam and Bryan Holt, CBC Radio says VC2 is “a tight unit, with excellent intonation and expression.” The Toronto-based duo presents artistically challenging yet accessible programs and have performed in venues ranging from intimate pubs to the Roy Thomson Hall.

Thanks to the special partnership with Xenia Concerts and the Meridian Hall (formerly Sony Centre), this concert will be free.
