Annual Daniel Lapp ‘Joy of Life Concerts’ returning to Victoria Conservatory of Music


Beloved local musician Daniel Lapp will be bringing his annual Joy of Life Concerts back to Alix Goolden Performance Hall at the Victoria Conservatory of Music (VCM) this month!

This year will bring two concerts—one on Friday, April 26th and a second on Saturday, April 27th, both to begin at 7:30 p.m.

The wondrous Joy of Life Concerts have been celebrating life and all of the wonders it brings us for over 20 years, each year bringing a renewed sense of inspiration, dedication and love for each other and nature.

As described, Lapp is bringing together a delightful mix of performers, including the young fiddlers of the BC Fiddle Orchestra and the Old-time Danceband. 

They’ll be joined by alumni to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the BC Fiddle Orchestra!

Guest performers, Ed Peekeekoot and Marin Patenaude, backed by the Joy of Life House Band, will also be sharing the stage.

For those that are unfamiliar, Peekeekoot is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and story-teller with true charm and wit that appeals to audiences of all ages. 

Patenaude is a musician and creator that puts deep care into what she releases into the world. She has three albums, her most recent one having hit the shelves in early 2023.

Lapp’s Folkestra! and the Joy of Life Choir will play a multitude of favourite Canadian tunes and hopes to bring the excitement of spring to all who hear them!

Tickets are just under $33 for adult general admission and just under $22 for youth admission.
