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!)
Attended a fantastic concert yesterday at the Victoria Conservatory of Music by friends and colleagues from the guitar side of the building. My favorite work by far was Stephen Goss’s work Under Milkwood Variations, which featured narration. What made it so great (to me) was that a character or scene was set up with spoken word and then echoed by guitar. For instance, in one movement the musicians imitated clocks. More faculty concerts are on their way, come out and listen!
