To all my friends in the Pianist Corner.

Unashamedly, I'm posting this video, even though it's OT, although I need to add, in defense of my action - if defense or justification is required - that the Victoria Conservatory of Music Summer Piano Academy takes place here, and some members who contribute to the Pianist Corner participate in that program.

(In the video Victoria overview starts around 4:30.

From the photographer's statement :
When you have 20 minutes to spare, this video from the wing of an air plane starts at Nanaimo Airport [about 50 miles North of Victoria, and comes down the East Coast of the Island over the Canadian Gulf Islands to Victoria. You can see the American Gulf Islands and the Olympic Peninsula to the south. The plane goes over Victoria and then heads West and then North and then over the island to Nanaimo again.

For those who may not be familiar with the geography, Vancouver Island is off the West coast of British Columbia. The Island is some 400 miles long and 60 miles at its widest point. The 49th parallel is the basic border with the United States, but much of the Southern Island seen in the video is south of the 49th. Enjoy.

Just before our wet weather began I had the Mustang ll out on a beautiful afternoon flight with a couple of wing-mounted cameras going. This video is the result of that afternoon’s flight. The Best Seat on the Planet - for exploring Victoria & Southern Vancouver Island.


Come visit some time or come to the Summer Piano Academy.

Lower Vancouver Island video

Of course moderator(s) may remove if it's seen as too far off topic for the Pianist Corner.

Regards,


BruceD

Do or do not. There is no try.

Thanks for sharing Bruce!

Reminds me of the time I took the harbour to harbour flight from Vancouver to Victoria.

I've only seen the southern part of Vancouver Island but it is truly beautiful. Bruce, you should have dubbed in your own playing; the background music is awful!

I'm one of those fortunate ones who have attended the VCM Summer Piano Academy, (for 4 years), and I can't praise it enough: non-competitive, welcoming atmosphere, world class teachers, performance opportunities, fascinating classes, plenty of practice rooms, relatively inexpensive, comfortable and economical campus accommodations. It's the best two weeks of my year.

Oh, and .. you get to met Bruce who is a heck of a nice person and an extremely talented, overly modest pianist.


Best regards,

Deborah
