Dear Symphony Fans – As you are aware at this time we are no longer able to gather due to Covid 19 Pandemic. Please know that our musicians are missing performing LIVE on stage at the theatre and we know that you are missing the music. The VIS Board of Directors, our Artistic Director, Pierre Simard and our CEO, Margot Holmes are working on a number of plans to connect with you, until we meet again in person. We hope you will check out videos from Pierre and our VIS Musicians on the website. Thank you for your ongoing support, it is needed and appreciated at this time.
With the anticipation that Phase 3 of the BC Government’s Start Up Plan will begin in July. The Vancouver Island Symphony has launched a small summer concert series. These concerts will feature small ensembles from the Vancouver Island Symphony performing outside throughout the summer.
