Brahms Symphony No. 2

November 6 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm


While labouring over his second symphony, Brahms told his publisher – with a wink in his eye – to expect melancholy. Instead, he produced his most idyllic, amiable, and uplifting score! To share this symphonic sunshine – along with charming reflections on childhood from Elgar and Grace Williams – we welcome special guest Holly Mathieson. The New Zealand-born, Glasgow-based conductor, recent mother, and social activist serves as Music Director of Symphony Nova Scotia, and promises to bring wit & warmth to her Victoria Symphony debut.
