Music & Poetry Saturday Feb. 13 - Port Theatre

Music and Poetry: Vancouver Island Symphony with special guest Shane Koyczan
7:30pm at the Port Theatre

You might think you do not know Shane, but we are pretty sure you have heard him. Let us give you the run down on this amazing poet… he blew us away at the Opening Ceremonies for  the 2010 Winter Olympics with his “We are More” -  a stirring ode to Canada. In early 2013, the world took notice again when Shane’s influential, anti-bullying, “To This Day” video went viral… over 14 million views and counting!

You will experience Shane’s thoughtful words – he covers a variety of topics. One moment he could be talking about issues in the USA and the very next he could be talking about his cat. One thing for sure, the beautiful pieces of music that Vancouver Island Symphony’s Artist Director, Pierre Simard, has chosen will make for a night to remember - some word-music encounters will be amazing, some will be provoking, some will be surprising, some might even be awkward... But the whole experience will be absolutely unique.
