We at the Victoria Conservatory of Music are so grateful to have the privilege to serve our community. Our donors, families, and students inspire us every day. We would like to share with you what we’ve learned about the magic of music:
Of all the arts, music is the most inclusive: it stretches from the world’s most celebrated music halls to small, obscure villages in every corner of the globe. It connects audiences and brings together strangers and friends alike. It defines our lives – a song or a melody has the power to transport us to a significant moment in time, whether it be the first dance at your wedding, the birth of a child, the loss of a loved one, or a momentous celebration. It also has the power to move us from the depths of despair in the aftermath of world tragedies. Music is the universal language that helps us make sense of our lives and reaches deep into the human spirit.
Thanks to the support of so many people in our community, we are poised for progressive, smart growth. While classical music will always be front and centre of what we do, our initiatives will not only sustain but expand our role as the premier centre for music education in this region, across Canada and one, internationally.
We thank you for your gift for music education which will allow us to continue to enrich the musical life of our community for generations of musicians and music lovers to come.
With heartfelt gratitude,
|Shannon von Kaldenberg,
