Music VICTORIA SOUL GOSPEL CHOIR 2017-05-11 19:00:00

Eldercare Foundation invites you to join us for a special concert in celebration of Mother’s Day! On Thursday, May 11th the Farquhar Auditorium will be energized with over 100 voices from 2 amazing choirs.

Opening the show at 7:00pm is the Victoria Freedom Gospel Choir , an all-ages group drawn together through their love of spirituals, African rhythms, gospel and folk music.

Our headliner, the Victoria Soul Gospel Choir, is a dynamic and high-energy group delivering the sounds of Motown, R&B, Gospel and Reggae in five-part harmony with choreography that will make you want to get up and dance! Checo Tohomaso, the enthusiastic director, has performed with Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, and the Commodores, and brings that authentic Motown sound to their music.

Net proceeds from this concert will help the Eldercare Foundation fund Music Therapy programs to enhance quality of life for elderly extended care residents.

There will be a short intermission during the performance.

Film TONI ERDMANN 2017-05-11 19:00:00


Director: Maren Ade; Germany, 2016, 163 min; German with subtitles; 14A


Comedies are supposed to be short, but this German farce succeeds by virtue of its endlessness—like its hero, an aging irrepressible joker, the movie keeps bugging you until you can't help but laugh. Winfried (Peter Simonischek) loves gags and goofy disguises, and his penchant for fun has alienated him from his grown daughter (Sandra Hüller), now a hard-charging business consultant. Winfried travels to Bucharest to spend a few weeks with the daughter and turns her neatly ordered world upside down, donning fake teeth and a black hippie wig and passing himself off to her associates as life coach Toni Erdmann. –Chicago Reader

A crazy, inventive, and emotive father/daughter escapade. –Toronto Star

Origin Stories

First Nations Prints and Carvings

Guest curated by Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) with Gillian Booth and Katie Hughes.

As Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Legacy Art Galleries respectfully acknowledges a much longer history by presenting First Nations narratives that move beyond limited settler versions of history. Through prints and carvings chosen by guest curator, Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) from the Fort Nelson First Nation, the exhibition explores centuries-old stories that continue to live in the people, communities, nations and lands of this place.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-11 10:00

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.
