VSO Music Director Maestro Bramwell Tovey is the consummate ambassador for music; his extraordinary artistic leadership and remarkable ability to relate to people on all levels, combined with passionate advocacy for music education makes him an ideal Music Director for an orchestra in the 21st Century.
