Fridays at 7:10pm (PDT), qatch on Facebook Live or, if you’re in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, open a window or step outside!
Music by the Sea (MBTS) in partnership with the Victoria International Marina presents a series of casual Friday-night live-stream concerts from the home of pianist and MBTS Artistic Director, Christopher Donison. The concerts take place at 7:10pm each Friday from now through June 26, 2020, and can be watched live on Facebook.
Donison plays the grand piano in his apartment, occasionally chatting about the music and sipping a glass of wine. Co-sponsors and producers PK Sound, Darcy Beck and Limbic Media have positioned speakers at the Victoria International Marina and on Donison’s 4th floor balcony of the Janion Building over-looking the Johnson Street Bridge. The inaugural event on May 15 drew a small socially distanced and appreciative audience on the bridge and over 1,000 tuned into the live stream on Facebook.
Join Donison on Friday, May 22, for the music of Jerome Kern, Bernstein, and Beethoven. “I might include some Supertramp and Brubeck too”, he laughs. “I’m playing whatever makes me feel good. The goal is to lift spirits with familiar melodies as we emerge from isolation.”
Future Friday night events will include guest artists – all performing safely and in compliance with BC’s Restart Plan.
