OSO returns to the stage

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is excited to present two livestreaming concerts in February. While continuing health protocols mean we are not able to invite audiences to enjoy our music live at this time, we look forward to connecting with you musically through your computer or tablet in two options next weekend. “We are thrilled to be back on stage making music together again after so many months,” shares Music Director Rosemary Thomson. “We are a little farther apart on stage, and wearing our masks, but the music will still ring out and we so look forward to sharing it with you.”

The first concert is an hour-long performance for small orchestra entitled WATER MUSIC — featuring selections from G.F. Handel’s iconic suite of the same name, and an innovative work by Canadian composer Kevin Lau entitled “Writ in Water.” The performance will be streamed live from the Kelowna Community Theatre (KCT) at 7:30pm on Friday, February 5.  Water Music tickets are $25 +GST and include a 2 for 1 tasting experience voucher for Peak Cellars.

The second concert, perfect for children and families, celebrates the music of nature – water, fire, large and small animals, and the sun and the moon. The NATURE OF MUSIC will be a fun way for the whole family to experience symphonic music.  This performance will be streamed live from the KCT on Saturday, February 6 at 2:00pm. The Nature of Music tickets are $15 +GST.

We are Okanagan made, our music is performed by your own OSO musicians, supported by season sponsor Peak Cellars and produced by a Kelowna company, Rebellious Unicorns.  Tickets for both events can be purchased through the platform Unicorns Live.  Following the live streamed event, the recording as video-on-demand will be available for 30 days.

Pick your favourite seat in the house, and make an evening or afternoon of it. We look forward to being back on stage and connecting with you, our community.

Publisher and CEO of something or other! First & foremost, father, son, brother and uncle. I am also a huge music fan, promoter and marketing & promotions maniac. As a fulltime musician for the past 35 years myself (yikes, that’s a long time!), I’ve come to appreciate the fact that I am able to perform and sing for people and in return, enjoy it as much as I do. There is something to be said for that exchange of energy and good vibes that live music brings to all, from the stage to the seats, there is nothing like it and I so look forward to feeling that again when we are out of this crazy mess we are in. Music is needed desperately in everyone’s lives. The goal is to reach out and bring some awareness and light into the music scene by featuring their new music, events and in general, some light into the changes we’ve all had to adjust to in 2020. We all feel the strain in every aspect of these changes and are going to try to do our best to fill our cups up with some fantastic local music while many so of us hang on through this bumpy ride we are on. ? Making an effort to change our own thoughts and habits, can strike a chord mentally and change us along with our communities lives. Be safe and…let’s ROCK N ROLL!
