For those not registered for the eight-week series, the cost is $10 to attend each lecture.

This is the fifth presentation in the series, with three remaining. Next week, Rick Husband and Dale Graham will talk about jazz. they will be followed by Pippa Williams, director of the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra, and will include a short performance of some of their pieces.

The final lecture will be a retrospective on the Comox Valley Youth Music Centre (CYMC), and a discussion of the many alumni that are now part of the Canadian and international music scene.
