The Butchart Chronicles : July 28, 2015

The Victoria Symphony, Wednesday, July 29, 2015

The Victoria Symphony at The Butchart Gardens

The Victoria Symphony’s one-night-only appearance at Butchart Gardens this summer is Wednesday, July 29 from 8:00 to 9:30 pm. It would be difficult to find something better than gorgeous orchestral music surrounded by the natural beauty of gardens that happen to be a National Historic Site?

The mission of the Victoria Symphony is: To enrich lives through the shared experience of extraordinary music. This will definitely happen Wednesday night - truly an enriching experience for all involved.

The program for the evening is as follows:

Tania Miller, conductor

Shostakovich – Festive Overture

Tchaikovsky – Waltz from Eugene Onegin

Khatchaturian – Adagio of Spartacus and Phrygia

Kabalevsky – Overture to Colas Breugnon

Rachmaninoff – Vocalise

Tchaikovsky – Dance Chinoise and Russian Trepak from Nutcracker

Borodin – In the Steppes of Central Asia

Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 6 (Mvt. 1)

Mussorgsky – Great Gate of Kiev

We are truly blessed to have The Victoria Symphony perform on the Concert Lawn at The Gardens once again this year. Like The Gardens, they are commited to supporting growth and outreach in the community. Explore the education, children's and school programs they offer, included the "Instrument Petting Zoo"!
