We hope that as we are, as autumn weather takes over, you’re still savouring fond memories of VSMF’s 2017 festival season.
The VSMF 2017 annual general meeting will take place on the evening of Tuesday, December 5, at the School of Music at University of Victoria.
More details of time and room number, as well as what’s on the agenda (including artists and dates for the 2018 season), will be announced closer to December 5, but we wanted to alert you to the date so you can make plans to attend.
The AGM is a great opportunity for you to meet the festival board, vote on the incoming board, and let us know your hopes and dreams for future editions of the festival.
Members of the Victoria Summer Music Festival Society are entitled to vote at this event. If you didn’t purchase or renew your membership during the summer, you’ll have a chance to do so at the meeting. For just $5.00 you can make a strong public statement about your belief in VSMF and demonstrate to funding agencies that we’re a vital part of the community.
We’re delighted to present Victoria’s rising young Wisteria String Quartet in an informal lunchtime concert at the Royal BC Museum’s Newcombe Plaza – aka the Food Truck Festival in the back courtyard!
You can sit and enjoy the music while you have your lunch – possibly obtained at one of the tempting food trucks. Or – if you’re just passing by, take a few minutes to sample the musical fare on offer from the festival later in the month up at UVic!
The Wisteria String Quartet was formed in the fall of 2016, and is comprised of violinists Amy Toth and Jasmine Mather, violist Jaling Kersen, and cellist Claire Dresselhuis. Since its founding, the young ladies and aspiring musicians of the WSQ have continued to develop a strong musical relationship and dedication to chamber music.
