SURREY — A “very special ticket offer” of $15 per seat is being floated by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra for its concert in Surrey on Monday, Dec. 5.

The event will feature the VSO with Seattle-born violinist Simone Porter as soloist and Mikhail Agrest as conductor, as part of the Surrey Nights series of concerts at Bell Performing Arts Centre.

A deal for four tickets for $15 each can be had through the VSO’s website, using the promo code PORTERBELL.

“A genuine star in the making, young violinist Simone Porter is a bold and virtuosic musician, a perfect match for the polished, lyrical Bruch Violin Concerto,” reads a VSO email about the concert.

“Russian conductor Mikhail Agrest has honed his craft for over a decade at the famous Mariinsky Theatre, and Tchaikovsky’s enchanting Orchestral Suite No. 3 will come to dazzling life under his baton.”

The year 2015 was a banner one for Porter, who had won a prestigious grant, has signed with a major talent agency and also garnered raves for her 2014 performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
