Fiddelium is true community connection in its most exciting form.
This annual production showcases the exceptional achievements of our city’s talented and hard-working young string players. The youth ensemble Fiddelium was formed over 10 years ago by Geoff and Trish Horrocks, who were the recipients of the 2020 City of Nanaimo Honour in Culture Award. This season, Fiddelium is a group of 11 award-winning youth musicians who present a show that is stunningly polished and visually exciting.
But this event goes beyond sizzle and flash to also include and celebrate multi-generational music making, featuring the 40-member community Folk Band on several numbers. Folk Band brings people of all ages and abilities together to create one of the most joyful musical experiences you will ever witness on the Port Theatre stage.
Adding to the excitement of this production is the release of Fiddelium’s very first CD recording.
Fiddelium will surprise you, thrill you, move you, and take you on an exciting journey through a vast and varied world of music.
