Thanks to everyone who came out to last night’s studio concert. Great job students!
Monday May 30th, 7:00-8:00, Wood Hall in the Victoria Conservatory of Music. 30 awesome performers from the age of 3.5 through 17 have been working hard all year and get to show it. I’m excited, students, as I’m sure you are too! Admission is free, but come early for a seat and to find parking (street parking only!)
With a lot of students in the festival and exams this year I’ve decided to host a few Sunday mini-recitals. These give students the oppertunity to try out their pieces in performance and deadlines to work towards. The room is small, so performances spots are limited. If you’re interested ask me about signing you up!
February 6th, Sunday, 2:00-3:00 in room 302, Victoria Conservatory of Music
Back in school and at the piano after a Christmas on North Pender (check out the awesome view from the cabin!) This year my fiction workshop is lead by Matthew Hooton, and I’m curious what he’ll have to say about writing–I saw him earlier last year give a reading from his recent novel at the AGPH. Matthew’s taking the workshop is a surprise, as Lorna Jackson was slated to head it. I’m sad to miss Lorna though, since it was one of her courses that made me decided to swing my degree from the writing of music to the writing of words.
Another new thing this year: students in the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival! As a student I played in the Terrace Music Festival every year, and it’s fun to be on the other side of it all now.
This term is going to fly by.
