Message From The Director - Maestro Darryl One
To my fellow supporters of the Victoria Symphony:
This season VSO will embark on three exciting journeys, each of which will bring to the stage the most familiar and popular works in the orchestral repertoire.
The first journey will take us through four of the truly great symphonies: the American-inspired New World symphony by Dvorak; Brahms’ First Symphony; the Romantic symphonic pillar, Mahler’s Symphony in D Major (Titan); and the pinnacle of Romantic storytelling and orchestration, Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique.
Our second journey will take us through three sparkling overtures by Giacomo Rossini: Semiramide, Il Signor Bruschino, and Cinderella. Tuneful and happy, these overtures are the ideal concert openers!
Our third and final journey is the exciting Brandenburg Project. We will survey its six concertos over the span of three seasons, featuring two per season. This season will feature the second and fifth Brandenburg Concertos, and will include a pre-concert discussion along with Baroque demonstrations.
Our annual pops concert will feature the Swedish sensation ABBA! This award-winning pop group has received accolades from performances all across the USA, and will be a highlight of our season.
Outstanding young guest artists, soloists from our own symphonies, ABBA, the Brandenburg Project, and the “great symphonies” will make this an especially exciting season. Come join the fun!
Darryl One, Music Director
