St Mary's, Oak Bay is pleased to announce the 2021 Advent concert series, Notes of Joy! Local performers contribute their gift of music as we prepare our hearts for Christmas, and support a local charity. Once again, we are pleased that donations will support the work of the Victoria Hospice Bereavement Fund.

The Advent noon concert series was established in 2007 by the late Catherine McFadden Dunning Young.

The Concerts

Each concert will be open for in-person attendance (masks and proof of vaccination required), as well as live streamed and recorded, on each concert's event page (see links below as the season progresses), on St Mary's live stream page, and on Facebook. Please don't forget to take a moment to make a donation in support of our charity parter for the series, the Victoria Hospice Society's Bereavement Services.
