Rattenbury auditions begin in Victoria

Ambition, passion, betrayal, murder - the life of early Victoria architect Francis Rattenbury seems like the stuff of a classic opera.

Listen audio (runs 6:50)

Music from Rattenbury will be featured at a concert Sept. 29 and 30 in the Crystal Ballroom at the Fairmont Empress hotel.
