Spark To Flame Ignites Musical Spirit for VCM Students

Join top student vocalists and instrumentalists as they perform alongside professional musicians at Alix Goolden Performance Hall.

Spark to Flame 2017 is an experience that enriches lives and ignites spirits for both musicians and audience members, one of the most important days of the year at the Victoria Conservatory of Music (VCM), the concert takes place on February 25.

Join top student vocalists and instrumentalists from VCM’s  Ann and George Nation Conservatory School of Classical Music as they perform alongside professional musicians and the VCM Senior String Orchestra at Alix Goolden Performance Hall.

“It is a dream that many aspiring music students have, however few realize: to one day play or sing as soloist with a symphony orchestra, with a famous conductor, in front of a full house of people who support them and share their love for music,” said Victoria Conservatory of Music’s  Dean Stephen Green. “Spark to Flame makes that possible, because we know realizing that dream is enough to turn the spark of talent, and passion for music a young student has, into the flame that their teachers at the VCM will nurture into the roaring blaze that fuels a great career.  It all begins with the spark, a great concert program, and a supportive audience.”

The concert includes several featured soloists: Concerto no.3 op.37, I. Allegro con brio – Beethoven -Aimi Howden (piano), Ah Perfido, op.65 – Beethoven -Jennifer Turner (voice) Double Concerto in E minor op.88, I. Andante con moto – Bruch -Emma Reader-Lee (violin) and Kate Moran (viola) and Sonata per la Grand Viola – Paganini -Andrew Montgomery (viola).
