The Civic Orchestra of Victoria presents Celebrating Home - a concert which offers a selection of works written by composers about their own countries. Together we will take a journey viewing the homelands of Sibelius, Dvořák, Coulthard, and Brahms through their own musical interpretations. In Prayer for Elizabeth by Jean Coulthard one may even find a nod to Canada and our history. The Civic Orchestra is delighted to take you on this international music journey at the Dave Dunnet Theatre in Oak Bay on May 27th.
