Event Description

Dragons, Godzilla, the Devil, and more! Meridiem Wind Orchestra brings fantasy to life with dramatic music for winds and percussion, played by some of Victoria's top musicians.

Scott MacInnes, Artistic Director; Dr. Steven Capaldo, Guest Conductor

This exciting program includes Eric Whitacre's Godzilla Eats Las Vegas, a wildly sensational work described by the composer himself as "completely ridiculous." This work will feature Victoria's own Robert Holliston (Head of the Keyboard Department at Victoria Conservatory of Music) on the piano.

Also on the program is Philip Sparke's Year of the Dragon - a virtuosic tour de force; Gordon Jacob's The Barber of Seville Goes to the Devil - a "comedy overture"; and the world premiere of Opera Eupho by Scott MacInnes - composed in memory of one of Meridiem's founding members, Dennis Latham.

Tickets are by donation (suggested $20 general, $5 students) and can be purchased in advance through the ticket link, or with cash at the door.

Doors to the theatre will open at 6:30pm.
