Millennium Festival Marks the Momentum of a Moment

UVic celebrates the millennium. Arts, cultural and academic events in April’s first week include a special convocation ceremony, an ambitious staging of Mahler’s “Symphony of a Thousand,” and an intriguing time capsule representing turn of the millennium student life. By John Threlfall.


“After the Mahler, you can’t get more ambitious. The Chorus is split into two 120-person choirs, each singing a different thing at the same time, and the first movement is in Latin while the second is in German. It’s as difficult as it can be.” — János Sándor
