Okanagan Symphony Orchestra invites people to virtual concert 'Suites & Serenades'

Symphony moves online

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is presenting their second livestream concert: Suites & Serenades.

The event takes place March 13, at 7:30 p.m. from the Kelowna Community Theatre featuring works from Holst, Tchaikovsky and Morlock. The orchestra’s talented string section will be the featured players in this hour-long performance.

“The juxtaposition of Holst's light-hearted St. Paul's Suite with the heart wrenching yearning of Tchaikovsky's Serenade holds a mirror to the wild mix of emotions that we are all experiencing through these tumultuous times,” says music director Rosemary Thomson.

“While I consider both of these works to be among my favourites, Jocelyn Morlock's Solace, which showcases the soaring virtuosity of our own Rachel Kristenson is sure to resonate with anyone who is looking for some deep connection to artistic expression.”

You can enjoy the performance from the comfort of your home on your TV, computer or tablet. Access to the concert will be available through the Unicorns.Live platform. Tickets are $25 plus GST. Once the livestream ends, the recording will be accessible for 30 days as video-on-demand.

You can also enjoy a charcuterie platter and wine for two during the concert, from Peak Cellars. The season’s sponsor will be delivering the treats to peoples doors from Vernon to Peachland. Details will be provided to you once you purchase your livestream access.

All orders must be placed by noon on March 13.
