Praised for her passion, technical prowess, and dedication to strong ensemble playing, Emily Salmon is the newest member of the Victoria Symphony in British Columbia, Canada. She is an enthusiastic participant in symphony functions both in the concert hall and in the community, as a performer and advocate for the arts. Her love for ensemble playing has resulted in performances with groups all over North America as well as parts of South America and Europe. The belief that music is of great importance on both a personal level and global scale is what continues to drive Emily to share her art form.
Upcoming highlights from this season with the Victoria Symphony:
Currently running: the wonderful Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss. What happens when two works of opposing natures must be performed simultaneously? Hilarity ensues as Zerbinetta and her merry gang of lovers attempt to cheer the jilted and bereft Ariadne, who is stranded on a desert island waiting for death. 2/15, 2/21, 2/23 at the Royal Theatre.
Legacy series features Prokofiev's delightful and virtuosic Classical Symphony, violinist Dale Barltrop playing Mozart's third violin concerto, and the profoundly moving Symphony No. 7 by Beethoven. One night only, and not a program to be missed! 3/3 at the Royal Theatre.
