The sad news of the sudden death of Jim Warner last Friday has left the Sooke Philharmonic mourning, not only the passing of a founder member of its woodwind section, but of a dear friend and colleague who will be sorely missed.

His support and concern for the growth and stability of the orchestra and the sustenance and development of Sooke’s musical health in general, was of enormous value to all of us who worked with him making music, as well as the community as a whole.

Our hearts go out to his wife Mary and family.
