Family fun includes instrument petting zoos for visitors of all ages and free mini classes with the VCM’s Early Childhood Music department for young visitors from 0 to 6 years of age from 10 a.m. to noon. Guests are also invited to experience the VCM’s exciting, new Music Technology Lab. The Open House offers a chance to chat with VCM faculty and ask about all of the music classes and lessons being offered at both the VCM downtown and VCM Westhills locations.
“We want everyone to come and join us in celebrating the incredible power of music,” says Victoria Conservatory of Music CEO Jane Butler McGregor. “We’re very excited to share the excellence the Conservatory offers to everyone in the community of every age and every ability. There are so many incredible programs available- from classical to contemporary to music technology to music therapy. We want to share them all!”
During the Open House visitors will have the opportunity to tour the school and view the performance halls, practice rooms, and recently moved library featuring 60,000+ music sheets and books. Guests can collect passport stamps as they go and enter to win free lessons and tickets to upcoming VCM Presents concerts.
The day features ongoing live performances on the Alix Goolden Hall stage starting at 10:15a.m. Conservatory faculty and students will entertain and inspire on a range of instruments in both classical and contemporary genres.
