June 2022 – Vancouver Island Symphony, Beethoven’s Third!

Electrifying Eroica – Vancouver Island Symphony performs Beethoven’s Third!

Our full orchestra returns to the stage, featuring the piece which we were rehearsing when our world was interrupted. Powerful symbolism permeates the work, the most perfect example of resilience in face of adversity. Also on the program, a new VIS commission featuring the words of Nanaimo Poet Laureate Tina Biello , with music by Vancouver composer Katerina Gimon.
