Our guest conductor for this concert, Yariv Aloni, studied conducting under the tutelage of the Hungarian conductor János Sándor. Aloni currently teaches chamber music at the University of Victoria and is the music director of the Galiano Ensemble of Victoria, the Victoria Chamber Orchestra, and the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra. He has received praise for conducting “impassioned, inspiring” and “magnificently right” interpretations of major orchestral and choral repertoire. Reviewers also describe Aloni as “a musician of considerable insight and impeccable taste.” The Civic Orchestra is always delighted to have the opportunity to work with such a master of orchestral craft.
