Louis Sherman Concerto Competition for Young String Players

The finalist competition is in the chapel at First Metropolitan United Church, 932 Balmoral Road (at Quadra). Admission is by donation. Come and support the players!

The winner of the competition will perform his/her complete concerto in our final concert of the 2017-18 season, Friday April 27, 2018 at 8:00 PM (First Metropolitan United Church). This concert also features Scriabin's Five Preludes and Haydn's Symphony No. 84.

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.
