About Ry Moran
This event marks the start of a relationship between the Victoria Conservatory of Music and Ry Moran who will be assisting the Conservatory through a guest faculty appointment in Music and Reconciliation.
Over the coming year, Ry aims to celebrate the role of music in advancing Truth and Reconciliation, while also helping explore the responsibilities carried by music centers like the Victoria Conservatory in its mission of learning, performance, and wellness. At the same time, Ry will continue work on an upcoming album, and be supported in the ongoing production of his podcast Taapwaywin. The project is supported by the City of Victoria’s Music Strategy program.
