CONTEST ALERT: We have a pair of tickets to giveaway for Great Classics with the Kamloops Symphony at the Sagebrush…
Join the Kamloops Symphony for Great Classics, featuring the music of two giants of the Classical period, Mozart and Beethoven, on Saturday, February 10 at 7:30 pm in Sagebrush Theatre.
The program is bookended by two works of Mozart, a youthful piece and a more mature work, proving that the only composer to surpass Mozart’s skill is Mozart himself. Starting the concert is the little-known overture to his opera Lucio Silla, composed when he was just sixteen years old. Concluding the concert is Mozart’s brilliant Symphony #41, his final symphony, nicknamed “Jupiter” for its creative majesty.
The central work of the concert is Beethoven’s Piano Concerto #1, performed by Guest Artist, pianist Avan Yu, who wowed the crowd at the KSO’s Beethoven Festival in 2014. One of Canada’s most exciting young pianists, BC’s own Avan Yu first became front page news as the youngest competitor ever to win the Canadian Chopin Competition at the age of 17, and then achieved international recognition when he won First Prize at the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2012.
Learn more about Avan on his website.
Tickets to this Noran Masterworks concert are $42, $39 Seniors, $10 Students (under 19), $15 TD Soundcheck Members (under 35), and can be purchased from Kamloops Live! Box Office at 250-374-5483 or www.kamloopslive.ca.
