Camosun, Conservatory & Vic High R&B Benefit for Access
For the second year in a row, the Victoria Conservatory of Music and the Vic High R&B band are teaming up with Camosun College students for the ACP Concert Series.
Friday, February 18, 2011 and Friday, February 25, Vic High and the Conservatory, respectively, will take the stage at Camosun’s historic Gibson Auditorium. Both nights will be videotaped by students of the Applied Communication Program, under the guidance of their instructor and program chair, Andy Bryce. After the final pieces are edited together, the DVDs are given to the performers to use as a keepsake or as demonstration pieces.
“All proceeds from the events will go directly to Victoria’s Access Health Centre, and we wanted a good local organization to support,” says Brett Blair, one of the event coordinators.“The Access Health Centre is a perfect example of collaboration and improvement to community services, and was chosen as our beneficiary for these reasons.”
“This is a great opportunity for students from School District 61 and Camosun College to collaborate on an exciting and fun show,” says Bryce.
The doors open both nights at 6:30, with the show getting underway at 7:30. Tickets will be available at the door — $5 cash only — and can be reserved via the event’s Facebook page (ACP Concert Series —ACPconcertseries@gmail.com ).
