A concert of distinguished UVic School of Music alumni performing music by legendary Czech-Canadian composer, bassoonist, and teacher Rudolf Komorous, in celebration of his 85th birthday.

Many of his students went on to become successful composers and his music has made a major imprint on new music in Canada and beyond.
Works include Olympia (1964), Lurid Bride (1999), and the premiere of Stone House (2016) composed especially for this concert. Also on the program is Morning Glory by Linda Catlin Smith — one of Komorous's former students.
