Unforgettable Fundraising Gala April 13, 2014

Magical Music of Mozart

An Unforgettable Charman Gala

Thank you to the donors, performers, volunteers, and everyone who attended the Magical Music of Mozart Gala on April 13 to support a very special cause: the Youth Education and Artist Training programs of the Victoria Symphony and Pacific Opera Victoria.

The exceptional food and service produced by The Fairmont Empress, the magnificent music performed by Pacific Opera soloists and the Victoria Symphony under the baton of Maestro Timothy Vernon, combined with the generosity of those in attendance, resulted in a glorious evening for the Performing Arts in the Capital Region.

We raised a net of $221,000 to be distributed equally between Pacific Opera Victoria and the Victoria Symphony to support our Youth Education Programs.

Congratulations to Unforgettable Award winners
