Victoria Hospice presents the violas of the Victoria Symphony in a special fundraising concert and silent auction.
Eight Victoria Symphony violists – Kenji Fuse, Mieka Michaud, Kay Cochrane, Stacey Boal, Jenny MacLeod, Donna Robertson, Chris Prince and Michael Van der Sloot, assisted by pianist Wendy Stofer – will play together in memory of Ingrid Buschmann, who was a long-time member of the viola section.
Buschmann died at Victoria Hospice in October 2013. Funds raised go to the Victoria Hospice’s Patient Comfort Fund.
The violists will perform the Gordon Jacob Suite for 8 Violas, York Bowen’s Fantasia for Four Violas, and a viola sonata dedicated to the memory of Buschmann, Seattle composer Greg Bartholomew’s In the Language of Meditation. The Victoria performance will be the work’s Canadian premiere.
The concert is Jan. 30 at James Bay United Church, 511 Michigan St., beginning at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $25 each. Please call 250-519-1744 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
