The Einstein of Entertainers
Al Simmons

CONDUCTOR: Scott MacInnes

He’s a musician! He’s an inventor! He’s a nut! The Einstein of entertainers, wizard of one-liners and lightning bolt of lunacy. His astounding gadgets, preposterous songs, impeccable comic timing and kooky take on classic vaudeville have thrilled and entertained fans of all ages for 54 years. Juno Award winner Al Simmons is a creative genius whose highly original performances of profound wackiness and of off-the-wall inventions have taken the arts of Music and Comedy to unparalleled heights of hilarity. Young or old, you cannot fail to appreciate this man’s frenetic stage antics and mind-boggling lovableness.

“A tour-de-force of ingenious, charming silliness.”
Globe and Mail

Will’s Jams
starring Will Stroet

CONDUCTOR: Andrew Crust

Rock out with JUNO-nominated musician Will Stroet of
Will’s Jams and the Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra! This interactive concert features Will’s most popular songs as seen on CBC Kids, Universal Kids, KidoodleTV and
Sensical TV. You and your family will be dancing along to catchy songs about reading, animals and nature with
colourful orchestral arrangements and sing-along choruses. You’ll also hear excerpts from popular classical hits, such
as The Barber of Seville and Flight of the Bumblebee,
which tie into Will’s interactive blues-rock music.

“Will’s Jams brings authentic family friendly music

and at our our events.”
