Symphony FREE Event - April 18

Vancouver Island Symphony Free Community Day

Saturday, April 18th 11:00 am

Musical Instrument Zoo (11 a.m. -12 noon)

So you’ve always wanted to know what it feels and sounds like to play a trumpet? Come along and find out. Symphony musicians will be in the lobby of the Port Theatre to help kids huff and puff and have a blow, zing some strings and pull a bow, make a toot or have a hoot, or try some rhythm with percussion precision. Many a musician will declare that all it took was someone showing them an instrument for them to decide and declare that was what they wanted to be when they grew up - a violinist, cellist, flutist, trumpeter, etc.

Meet Composer Dorothy Chang (11:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.)

Symphony Rehearsal (12:30-1:30 p.m.)

Find a seat in the theatre, take in a symphony rehearsal, and watch as all the musicians and their instruments come together to make music. The conductor, Maestro Pierre Simard, will gesture with his baton and work with the musicians and guest artist to change a phrase here, add an expression there, to give the music just the right feel, ready for the concert that evening!

Reserve your Complimentary Ticket: 250-754-8550
