I enjoyed listening to these young violinists on Sunday when I chanced to come upon them playing on Government Street. They are members of the BC Youth Fiddle Orchestra and were raising money to enable them to travel to an event in New Brunswick. The BC Fiddle Orchestra is a program of the Victoria Conservatory of Music.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
