String Faculty Recital

Admission by donation. Entry for this concert will be at the Victoria Conservatory of Music – 900 Johnson Street.

Victoria Conservatory of Music celebrates its 60th anniversary with Focus on Strings – A series of concerts featuring internationally renowned artists including the New Orford String Quartet (May 16), CelloFest: Paul Marleyn and Friends in Recital (May 17), and the Victoria Conservatory Strings Faculty Artists in Concert (June 15).

These concerts celebrate the work of Victoria Conservatory’s Founding Head of Strings Sydney Humphreys, and cellist James Hunter, who together with the Conservatory’s founding Principal, pianist Dr. Robin Wood, performed as Trio Victoria across Vancouver Island and throughout Western Canada, growing awareness of the newly founded Music Conservatory in Victoria, and the excellent quality of music instruction it would become nationally renowned for.

On June 15, come and hear members of our own Victoria Conservatory String Faculty performing some of the great ensemble works from the 18th, 19th, and 20th century.
