I know you miss live music. The romance, the atmosphere, the bounce of sound around a large room, the dedication of the performers showing in every draw of the bow or pluck of an individual string. Don’t worry, we will have it back again. But I take some comfort knowing that people like my guest today are taking advantage of this time to polish performances that will explode for us as soon as this rough patch is over. One way or another, live music will happen again, with a vengeance!

We’ve interviewed a couple of musicians so far on this series – and we hope to host many more, by the way – but we have yet to talk about the classical music community. If, like me, you are a fan of symphonic music, ground-shaking percussion, romantic strings and emphatic horns, you’re really going to enjoy this. If you’re a young classical musician, you are probably already aware of my guest today, who is the well-known instructor and Director of the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra.

In the last few years, my guest has produced concerts with the Celtic Tenors, Barrage, and Cirque Musica. He is a performer, composer, and collaborator with the popular local production Songs, Strings and Steps. He’s the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for service to the community, and the recipient of an honorary additional Doctor of Humanities by Trinity Western University. He is also the First Violin and Concertmaster of the Vancouver Island Symphony. Please welcome Dr. Calvin Dyck!
