Symphony kicks off season

Three Bs kick off the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra's 59th season.

Those are, of course, Bach, Beethoven and Brahms.

Their music spans three centuries of Germanic tradition and opens the OSO season with guest artist pianist Jane Coop, Sept. 21-23.

Described as “an artist of unusual distinction” (New York Daily News), Coop has performed around the world and has been awarded the Order of Canada. 

Coop will be featured in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, one of this composer’s most lyrical works. 
“We are all so thrilled to welcome Jane Coop, a legend among Canadian pianists to our stages” says OSO music director Rosemary Thompson.

The program will open with the Orchestral Suite No. 1 by Bach, a collection of dances from the baroque era which display unlimited melodic invention with sparkling rhythms. Finally, Brahms will take listeners to a more romantic scene inspired by the beauty of nature with his Serenade No. 1.
Tickets are available at www.okanagansymphony.com. Pre-concert chats with Thomson one hour before each show.

  • Penticton Cleland Theatre – Saturday, Sept. 22, 7:30 p.m.
