Where: VSO Digital Concert Hall (Orpheum Theatre, 601 Smithe, Vancouver)
When: Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 7:00pm
Tickets: Available online now

This once-in-a-lifetime world premiere concert event will bring the Oscar® nominated holiday classic to Orpheum Theatre, and will feature The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and choir performing every note from Alan Silvestri’s masterful score (with original songs co-written by Silvestri and Glen Ballard) while the entire film is projected on a 40-foot HD screen. Festive and fun pre-show activities will include carolers, a selfie photo wall, coloring tables for kids, an exclusive and immersive way to buy merchandise, and even Santa Claus!

In The Polar Express in Concert, experience the musical magic of Christmas Eve through Alan Silvestri’s unforgettable score and be immersed as The Polar Express adventures up and down mountains, slip-slides over ice fields, and teeters across mile-high bridges. Embark on this musical journey to the North Pole while watching the iconic film about friendship, bravery, and the spirit of Christmas. The wonder of life never fades for those who believe.

Pre-Show with the Composer

Alan Silvestri (Avengers, Forrest Gump, Back to the Future 1-3, Predator) – the film’s composer and two-time Academy Award® and Golden Globe® Award nominee for an exclusive pre-show discussion about the score and his career. Moderated by conductor Justin Freer starting at 6:00pm at Pyatt Hall (limited to 100 seats), all patrons interested in attending should RSVP here.
