Charity: UPDATE Victoria Symphony Splash – Band Of Heroes 2013
On August 4th, my wife Katie and I attended the Victoria Symphony Splash – Band of Heroes 2013 event at Victoria, B.C.’s Inner Harbor. We are supporters of the event and even sponsored the Principal trumpet player, Ryan Cole, whom we are now friends with. You can read more about the event and our sponsorship in my previous blog by CLICKING HERE.
It was a wonderful event as usual with the Victoria Symphony Orchestra’s music filling the air and an awesome finale of fireworks over the harbor.
The people of Victoria look forward to this event every year as it highlights young musicians and brings the whole community together. Many start vying for their front row seats on the Empress Lawn as early as 6:30 a.m. on the morning of the event.
Needless to say it was a lovely evening and as members of the Band Of Heroes this year we were included in the sponsors photo shoot which was lovely.

Below is a lovely video from Heidi Krebs of the grand finale which included the Victoria Symphony playing Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture with fireworks exploding over the Songhees. I hope you enjoy it.
