The Civic Orchestra of Victoria presents American Perspectives - a concert featuring works by two American composers, Amy Beach and George Gershwin. Beach's Gaelic Symphony was the first symphony composed and published by a woman in America. It debuted in Boston in 1896 to "public and journalistic acclaim." The Civic Orchestra is delighted to bring this work to the Dave Dunnet Theatre stage, alongside selections from Gershwin's more widely known Porgy and Bess.

-- All patrons must wear masks at all times including when seated.

-- Patrons will be asked to leave an empty seat between parties when sitting in the theatre. The current PHO allows us to use 50% of the capacity of the theatre, so we will be limiting ticket sales to allow spacing between parties for the increased comfort and safety of our patrons.
