25 Years of Making Music Together
Since incorporation in 1993, the Victoria Chamber Orchestra has had one goal - to be one of the best amateur chamber orchestras in North America.
When Yariv Aloni took up residence in Victoria in 1994, the Victoria Chamber Orchestra seized on the opportunity to hire Mr. Aloni as our Musical Director. He has held this position throughout our 25 years -- an astounding fact that indicates how the VCO values our leader. Most orchestras are lucky to have a satisfying relationship with their conductors for five years! For the Victoria Chamber Orchestra it is year 25 with Maestro Aloni, and we are looking forward to many more.
Audience members love the programming that Maestro Aloni comes up with. The VCO members always grow into each concert program even though there may be some sharp intakes of breath and even a few gasps - “Can we really do this?” - when we are first given our new music folders. But when the performances take place we are once more rewarded with the pleasure of meeting another successful challenge, supported and led by our leader who has yielded such great rewards to the VCO.
In 2019-20 experience a new level of string-orchestra performance of gorgeous programs with the Victoria Chamber Orchestra.
