Joy of Life Special Guests and Performances

Daniel Lapp’s special guests include Shari Ulrich (BC), Lennie Gallant (PEI), and Tania Elizabeth (BC / Nashville TN). They join almost 150 of Daniel’s students from the BC Fiddle Orchestra, Folkestra!, and Joy of Life Choir, performing Daniel’s unique arrangements of songs including Snowbird and the Log Drivers Waltz that will have viewers dancing and singing along from home.

Celebrate Canadian and BC fiddle tunes

During COVID-19, Daniel Lapp and his VCM students have continued online learning and exploring Canadian songs and British Columbia Fiddle Tunes. The songs you will hear them perform are iconic Canadiana and include toe-tapping polkas and jigs from Daniel’s 100 year recorded history of BC’s indigenous fiddle tunes, written in celebration of iconic BC landmarks such as the Barkerville Connection or the Tabor Mountain Hornpipe.

Sing and play along!

Join us online as Daniel Lapp’s Joy of Life Cross Canada Celebration, presented by the Victoria Conservatory of Music, brings families together from coast to coast to coast to sing and play along from home “West Coast kitchen party style”, plus tips on how to create an amazing Thanksgiving dinner as Daniel visits with renowned BC chef Peter Zambri, co-owner of Victoria’s famous Zambri’s restaurant, listed in the BC’s Restaurant Hall of Fame.
