The Victoria Symphony is set to host both live and virtual events in the upcoming weeks that feature Greater Victoria’s most talented artists and beyond.

The complete Beethoven symphonies will be led by music director Christian Kluxen, and orchestral masterpieces of a wide variety are to be led by Robert and Clara Schumann.

Other artists include pianists Lorraine Min and Stewart Goodyear, and conductor Alexander Weimann.
