Admission is by donation.

Each of the three evenings has a different musical focus. Jazz combos, the VIU Wind Ensemble and Classical soloists take the stage April 7.

On April 9, the beat is provided by VIU’s Jazz Ensemble and the Nanaimo Music Association’s Big Band.

The College Singers and the VIU Vocal Jazz Ensemble give voice to some great music April 10.
