The Victoria Foundation has just published an article saluting the Hugh Davidson Fund recently established in the memory of the late Mr. Hugh Hanson Davidson (May 27, 1930 – July 14, 2014).
“Hugh Davidson’s passion for music and his support of contemporary composers and composition has been felt in our community through the private commissions of new works by the Victoria Symphony. This legacy continues through the establishment of the Hugh Davidson Fund. The purpose of this fund is to promote the wide knowledge of, and education in, newly composed Canadian orchestral music – music commissioned or written by Canadian citizens to be performed by an orchestra.
“It was Hugh’s vision to aid the public rehearsal, performance and recording of this music by the Victoria Symphony and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.”
