The Victoria Symphony performs on the traditional lands of the Lekwungen peoples and acknowledges with respect the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continues to this day. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live, create, and perform on this territory.
Together we raised over $105,000 in support of our VS musicians and Youth Education Programs!
To everyone who attended, made a gift, donated to the online auction, or purchased auction items — thank you for your help in making the Spectacular Spring Gala & Auction a tremendous success!
Thank you to our Three Maestros and VS musicians for the evening’s fantastic entertainment!
