" I have always plotted escape from the distractions of the real world and a chance to completely immerse myself in music. That's what I found at PRISMA, from the moment I woke to the time my head hit the pillow super-saturated with Mahler and Bartok."

Adrienne Joy Bassett, 2014 harp student

In This Issue:
There's less than one week until PRISMA 2015! As the festival draws nearer, we'd like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of our volunteers, donors, and corporate partners. PRISMA would not be able to happen without them!

To kick off the 2015 festival, we'd like to invite you to our PRISMA Fundraiser at the Laughing Oyster on Sunday, June 14. 

We also have an exciting offer to youth who are interested in attending PRISMA concerts--read on for more details!

If you're interested in volunteering with PRISMA, please get in touch with us! All our volunteers receive a PRISMA T-shirt and complimentary access to chamber concert(s) and master classes.
PRISMA Presents: The 3rd Annual Celebration of the Senses
5:30 pm | Wednesday, June 17 | Willingdon Beach

Join us for an evening of local music, art, food and a historical tribute to the 70th anniversary of the Dutch Liberation. This tribute, "Two Countries--One Spirit," will feature speeches by Dutch and Canadian dignitaries, a flight show, and, of course, live music by PRISMA's symphony orchestra, the Pacific Philharmonic. The HMCS Whitehorse will anchor nearby, and, during the Overture 1812 by Tchaikovsky, real cannons will be fired from the beach. For more information on the event and its history, visit

Please bring your own reusable dishes/cutlery to the event as we are striving to be a Zero Waste event.
