Victoria Symphony returns to QB Dec. 12

Poplar event is sure to sell out early, so get tickets fast

The Victoria Symphony will once again be doing a Christmas Pops show in Qualicum Beach on Monday, Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m.

The concert, A Sentimental Christmas, will feature conductor Brian Jackson with some all-time holiday favourites including White Christmas and The Christmas Song to get you in the mood for the best time of the year.

As a holiday gift, local singing sensation Emily Braden will perform with the orchestra.

Maestro Jackson is the principal, pops conductor for the Victoria Symphony, the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony and Orchestra London Canada.

Jackson’s innovative Pops programming has made him Canada’s favourite Pops Conductor. He not only arranges and orchestrates many of the scores, but in many cases plays and conducts from the keyboard. A noted pianist, he has played Mozart concerti and the Gershwin Rhapsodies across the country.

Tickets for the concert are on sale at the Mulberry Bush bookstore for $33.

Ten names from the first 400 who buy tickets will be randomly drawn and invited along with a guest to attend the post-concert reception in the Windsor room with the orchestra.
