Here are highlights of events that our students can attend across campus in the month of August. To see all events on campus this month, go to the UVic events calendar.

 

August 1 & 6

Victoria Summer Music Festival

The Victoria Summer Music Festival has been delighting audiences with chamber music concerts every summer since 1996, the year it was registered as a non-profit society.

Annually, at midsummer, we enrich the cultural life of British Colombia, with distinctive, high-calibre, evening chamber music concerts- 129 in 24 years often to sold-out houses.

Offering audiences and performers a musical experience that feeds sublime human needs is a core value. Performers are chosen not only for their purely musical strengths but also for their ability to communicate with each other and the audience.

 

August 7, 14, 21 & 28
