This 23 minute long documentary was filmed just a few years ago. It includes interviews with key members of the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra and video clips of perfomances, including the tremendously difficult Concerto for Orchestra by Béla Bartók. That performance took place at UVic's University Centre Auditorium.

The orchestra is led by the legendary conductor and musician Norman Nelson. The film is a touching exploration of the lifelong commitment of musicians to their craft and the community of Sooke.

If you watch closely you may be able to identify some of the local musicians, including Gail Nash who acts as secretary on the boards of MACCA and the WSAC.
