By Fraser Lewry

Rush bassist Geddy Lee has been announced as one of the guest musicians at the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s virtual event The Show Must Go On: Stories of Resilience.  

The show will be hosted by jazz and pop singer Steve Maddock, and also feature appearances from Dutch conductor Otto Tausk, renowned violinists James Ehnes and Itzhak Perlman, soprano Measha Brueggergosman, k.d. lang, Barenaked Ladies co-founder Steven Page, trumpeters Jens Lindemann and Bria Skonberg, and pianist Stewart Goodyear.

While it’s unclear quite what Lee will be doing at the show, we do have a time and a place: at the VSO’s website at 6:30PM local time on February 18, 2021.

The evening promises “stories you never get to hear – the missed flight; the story behind the story of the delayed start; the imposter Maestro; what the VSO did when Queen Latifah became ill two days before she was to appear with the VSO; stories of intrigue and mystery – all accompanied by inspiring music, amazing food, wine and ambiance – in the comfort and safety of your own home.”
