Guest conductor featured in Victoria Civic Orchestra St. Paddy’s performance

Yariv Aloni keeps busy musically with orchestras and ensembles around Victoria

Soak up some afternoon classics before you head out on the town to celebrate the Patron Saint of Ireland this March 17.

The guest conductor for this concert, Yariv Aloni, studied conducting under the tutelage of the Hungarian conductor János Sándor. Aloni currently teaches chamber music at the University of Victoria and is the music director of the Galiano Ensemble of Victoria, the Victoria Chamber Orchestra and the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra.

He has received praise for conducting “impassioned, inspiring” and “magnificently right” interpretations of major orchestral and choral repertoire. Reviewers also describe Aloni as “a musician of considerable insight and impeccable taste.” The Civic Orchestra is always delighted to have the opportunity to work with such a master of orchestral craft.

The program for the evening contains Rossini’s William Tell Overture, Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 in B minor D759 (“The Unfinished”), Irish Rhapsody by Stanford and selections from Bizet’s Carmen.

The performance gets underway at 2 p.m. at the Dave Dunnet Community Theatre, Oak Bay High, 2121 Cadboro Bay Rd. Tickets are $22 for adults, $18 for seniors and $10 for students. Visit civicorchestraofvictoria.org for more information.
