Share

World class Early Music is coming to Victoria, and you’re not going to want to miss it!

This August, downtown Victoria’s Christ Church Cathedral will be filled with the sweet sounds of symphony, by way of Pacific Baroque Orchestra’s Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610.

Interested in checking it out for yourself? You’re in luck, because we’ve partnered with Victoria Symphony to give away TWO pairs of passes to this incredible event—you’ll find those contest details below.

Happening on Friday, August 2nd, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 is an undisputed masterpiece of spiritual and emotional depth, at times intimate and reverent, grand and dramatic, thrilling and sensual.

Tickets are available online to this one-of-a-kind performance, so get yours while you still can!

Brilliant instrumental writing paired with impressive choruses and solos create an opulent tribute to the Virgin Mary, a testament to Monteverdi’s attention to the expressive power of music.
