The iconic rocker Frank Zappa has written some of the most engaging and challenging repertoire of the twentieth century. With works like The Dog Breath Variations: Uncle Meat/Dog Meat, preconceptions of classical music are left at the door in this one-of-a-kind event. Maestro Kluxen leads the orchestra in this eclectic concert also featuring Zappa’s idol, Edgard Varèse and the always surprising music of Canada’s Nicole Lizée.
The policies of the Victoria Symphony, the Royal Theatre and the University of Victoria state that every person must have a ticket in order to be admitted to a performance.
