Our Berwick Chamber Music series concludes for the 2017-18 season with Northern Lights, featuring the Ventos Wind Quintet, on Saturday, March 24 at 7:30 pm in the Thompson Rivers University Clocktower Theatre.
Ventos (which means “Wind” in Portuguese) is based in the Vancouver area but endeavours to bring quality chamber music to all parts of British Columbia and beyond. Ventos was born out of each member’s individual passion to share their artistry and inspire others while making great music as a group. The quintet aspires to engage audiences young and old with exciting performances of the classic wind quintet repertoire, transcriptions for wind quintet and commissioning new works for their genre. Ventos is Jeff Pelletier, flute; Kristen Cooke, oboe; Mike Brown, clarinet; Nick Anderson, horn; Katelin Coleman, bassoon. Learn more about them by visiting their website.
Join this exciting wind quintet on a tour through the music of several Nordic countries. Rich harmonies, playful banter between the instruments, and wonderful melodic lines intersperse the repertoire to create a musical voyage to the Faroe Islands, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
Tickets are $25, $10 Students (under 19), $15 TD Soundcheck members (under 35), and can be purchased from Kamloops Live! Box Office.
