Victoria’s Canada Day Virtual Celebration
The City of Victoria is excited to present Victoria’s Canada Day, a virtual celebration. Join us on July 1 at 7 p.m. on CHEK for an impressive line-up of diverse, multicultural performances and community content. The one-hour, commercial free broadcast will also be streamed on canadadayvictoria.ca and the City of Victoria’s You Tube channel.
Hosted by CHEK’s Joe Perkins and Stacy Ross, Victoria’s Canada Day will feature musical performances from an exciting local line-up, with a special performance by the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers. 
Crowd-sourced content will be interspersed throughout the show, with members of the community demonstrating “What it means to Me to be Canadian” and singing “O Canada”.
An eclectic mix of local music will be showcased including Victoria’s acoustic duo Ocie Elliott, comprised of Jon Middleton and Sierra Lundy; the soulful world sounds of Caleb Hart who grew up in Trinidad and Tobago; and the collective talent of The Phatfunks – a multi-member band that combines old-school funk, R&B, Hiphop, and Jazz Fusion. 
The one-hour special will also feature Paint The Town Red, a rap group forged from the Tsartlip Nation in the Wsanec territory comprised of Brian Sampson a.k.a YellowWolf, Thomas Paul a.k.a Barndawg, and Addie Elliott. Viewers will also enjoy the genre-bending pop/R&B sounds of Fake Fake, featuring Victoria-based artists Charlotte Hynds and Justin Campbell. 
Victoria’s Artist in Residence Kathryn Calder, a solo artist and a vocalist and keyboardist with indie rock group The New Pornographers, and Latin Grammy award winner Kuba Oms will also perform. 
The musical extravaganza will round out with performances by the internationally-recognized violinist Sari Alesh, the vocal talents of singer/composer and founding member of The Canadian Tenors Ken Lavigne, and Chris Donison, a Canadian composer, librettist, conductor, pianist and founder/Artistic Director of Music by the Sea. 
The virtual celebration will also feature members of Pacific Opera Victoria performing Pop Up Opera, featuring a soloist or duet accompanied by recorded tracks created by pianist Robert Holliston.
And there will be fireworks – footage from a past Symphony Splash.
“I would like to thank event partners Canadian Heritage, CHEK and Do250 for helping us bring the community together virtually to celebrate our country’s diversity and strength, the many talented performers for taking part, and all those who contributed a video to our Victoria’s Canada Day showcase,” said City Councillor and Canada Day Organizer Charlayne Thornton-Joe.
This year’s Victoria’s Canada Day is made possible by the Canadian Heritage Celebrate Canada program, which is providing $50,000 in funding for the virtual event.

Big Cities, Private Moments is Fraser Brinsmead's hotly anticipated collection of new paintings at West End Gallery in Victoria! Based on landscapes from his travels, Fraser captures the private moments that bring the immensity of the whole down to the intimate of the individual.
Capturing iconic cities such as New York and San Francisco, Fraser has also set his artistic eye to the more familiar cities of Vancouver and Victoria. Drawn to the urban landscape in its varied forms, he's persistently drawn to capture the humanity within the space. In some instances the buildings loom large and overpower the people around them while in other, there is a sense of balance and peaceful co-existence. A constant muse, the urban landscape offers an endless source of inspiration to capture Fraser's attention.
