Info: 250-598-1966

The finalist competition is in the chapel at First Metropolitan United Church, 932 Balmoral Road (at Quadra). PLEASE NOTE: Enter by the Balmoral Road doors, not the main church entrance.

The winner of the competition will be invited to participate in a master class on Thursday April 16/20 with Nikki Chooi, internationally known violinist. Nikii will perform the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Victoria Chamber Orchestra on Friday April 17/20.

The Louis Sherman Concerto Competition was established in 2000 with the generosity of Louis’ daughter, Claudia Chance, and the Victoria Chamber Orchestra. This honours the memory of an outstanding musician. Born in Toronto, 1907, the eldest of five brothers, Louis died in October 1999.

Louis was very active in the Victoria music scene, and is remembered most for his kindness and generosity toward his fellow musicians, particularly talented young string players and emerging artists. As a benefactor, he helped to establish the Victoria Chamber Orchestra, and many of the current performers remember him fondly as a friend.
