“Symphony 21 doesn’t strive to reinvent the wheel. Instead, they are attempting to reattach the wheel to the hybrid-electric vehicle that is the 21st century. They are in many ways, a gateway orchestra to the broader classical music world”
Symphony 21 is an orchestra based in Vancouver, BC, Canada that seeks to reimagine how we experience classical music. Our mandate is to bring this genre to people who may not otherwise experience classical music in their everyday life, by producing concerts in found spaces, and updating the context in which our concerts our presented.
Under the direction of artistic director Jaelem Bhate, the orchestra has continued to experience growth even through the COVID-19 pandemic. Having produced a digital Fall season in 2020, an with more digital content being produced for the summer of 2021, Symphony 21 continues to present innovative programming to a wide audience.
As a new orchestra, we rely on grass-roots support from our community. If you are interested in supporting our mission and mandate, please consider becoming a patron of our orchestra and movement. More information is available at www.symphony21.ca
