Okanagan Symphony Orchestra announces 2022/2023 concert season

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is delighted to announce the launch of its 2022/2023 season.

Ticket sales for returning subscribers are now available. New subscribers and single ticket purchasers are welcome to buy as of Monday, September 26. Flexible subscription packages and several options for enjoying the Symphony at a lower price point make it clear that the OSO is for everyone! Music Director Rosemary Thomson extends a warm welcome.

“I am so looking forward to making live music for you, something which I will never take for granted again.”

This season of eight mainstage concerts, enhanced by the OSO’s robust education and community programming, is marked by first-time appearances by several distinguished artists, and the return of a number of audience favourites.

“Our repertoire has a balance of traditional gems from the standard orchestral canon and new works from the composers of today,” says Ms. Thomson.  “I am particularly excited to feature compositions by female composers on all of our mainstage programs.” Explore the entire season through the online brochure.
