We’re Back! Our 2021/22 Season

We are thrilled to announce the fall of our 21/22 season with limited audiences and socially distanced seating working up to full concert venues in December. We’re working with our local venues to ensure we’re meeting and exceeding health and safety guidelines as presented by the Provincial Health Authority. Protecting our musicians and the audience is our number one priority, and we’re looking forward to welcoming you back safely…albeit in smaller numbers.

Single tickets are on sale now for most concerts in the fall. We will return to our regular subscription model in the 2022/23 season. All current subscribers (2019/20 season) will retain their current seats for the 2022/23 season. Details on the spring 2022/23 season will be announced in October.

Single tickets for concerts at Farquhar at UVic and Christ Church Cathedral will be sold at the UVic Box office (250.721.8480). Tickets for concerts at the Royal Theatre will be sold at the Royal Theatre Box office (250.386.6121).
