The Victoria Jazz Orchestra will donate 50% of their concert proceeds to the Single Parent’s Resource Centre.
Get into the giving spirit this November. The Victoria Jazz Orchestra along with guests Maria Manna, Andrew Homzy and The Cathedral School Choir, will be performing an evening jazz fundraiser for The Single Parents’ Resource Centre, a community non-profit charity in Victoria, BC. A staggering 50% of children living in single-parent homes are living in poverty and child poverty rates in BC currently remain above the national average. The Single Parent Resource Centre provides free clothing, food, counseling and Christmas gifts for families in need and this November The Victoria Jazz Orchestra along with their guests are inviting the public to join them in supporting this much-needed and busy organization to combat child poverty in the city of Victoria. Helping the folks at the Single Parent Resource Centre will directly and positively impact the lives of children.
The November 16th fundraiser concert features a wintery holiday theme, “A Christmas Carol.” The Orchestra will perform with Maria Manna, one of Victoria’s most celebrated songstresses alongside the Cathedral School Choir with selections from their beautiful holiday program. Conducting the ensemble will be Andrew Homzy, the Artistic Director of the Nanaimo International Jazz Festival. Included in the program will be a new work by Andrew Homzy written just for this event that will be performed by Maria Manna with the festive swinging jazz orchestra. Don’t miss the magic. Join us in helping support Victoria’s children over the holiday season and just in time for Christmas!
