MAY 9 & 10, 2020


Strolling through beautiful gardens carried along by wonderful music, is there truly any better way to spend the day with with your family and friends?

This Mother’s Day weekend we invite you to connect with gorgeous gardens and enjoy springtime in Victoria with the VCM.

About the Garden Tour

From exotic to native, established or new, country acreage to city spaces, every outdoor oasis featured as part of the Mother’s Day Musical Garden Tour offers an exquisite treat for the senses. Paired with music and musicians provided by VCM students and faculty, these unique spaces are elevated to the truly sublime.

An essential fund raising event for the Victoria Conservatory of Music for close to 40 years, the Garden Tour raises money for important VCM scholarships and programming.

It is the brainchild of Ann and George Nation, the dedicated couple coordinated every aspect of the tour for two decades.

Brian Johnston now coordinates the tour with help from an amazing team of volunteers, who proudly maintain the legacy began by Ann and George Nation.

As the Victoria Conservatory of Music’s biggest annual fundraising event, we are thrilled to have raised almost $95,000 in 2019 to help us enrich lives through music.

We are so grateful to the owners who spent hours preparing their private, gorgeous gardens and opening them up for the public to enjoy.
