We are thrilled to learn that former TSO resident conductor Victor Feldbrill, 92, has been named curator and conductor of next season’s all-Canadian program titled With Glowing Hearts.

It includes works by Archer, Beckwith, Champagne, Freedman, Somers and Weinzweig. Feldbrill will shares the podium with RBC resident conductor Earl Lee.

More here.



  • James Manishen says:

    Am thrill to read this. Victor is a Canadian treasure!
    An extensive biography of Victor exists by Walter Pitman, for those unfamiliar.

  • Maestro Feldbrill led the TSO last Saturday in John Weinzweig’s Suite from Red Ear of Corn. What a pro.

  • Brent Straughan says:

    Victor is an absolute gem! In the late 70’s he conducted a huge work by a young unknown composer (me) which gave me a fantastic boost, for which I am forever grateful.

    You can hear Victor, with his incredibly energized talent, conducting a portion here:
