VIS Ambassadors are people in our community that believe that the arts make our lives better and produce thriving communities that are more enjoyable places to live for everyone. VIS Ambassadors (formally Women of Note) support the concept of Life-Long Learning which helps deepen one’s understanding of music and enjoyment of a live performance at any age. These types of experiences enrich the mind, fuel the imagination and generate an interest in music and artistic expression. Everyone and anyone who wishes to advocate for Music Education in our communities can be a VIS Ambassador.

VIS Integrated Music
Education Program

VIS Ambassadors believe that all children should experience the Symphony by attending a performance, meeting a musician or learning about an instrument. For more than 20 years, funds raised through Ambassador memberships have brought thousands of children to hear &
see a live Symphony concert designed specifically for 9- and 10- year olds. For the 2023-2024 Season, every Grade 4 student in school districts 68 (Nanaimo-Ladysmith) and 71 (Comox Valley) will travel to their local concert hall to see Baba-Yaga & The Magic Gallery in January 2024.


VIS Ambassadors support special learning opportunities like Open Rehearsals, pre-show chats and lectures with special musical guest speakers. VIS Ambassadors have first access to these paid and free events.
