Kamloops Symphony presents Reeds in the Wind
The Kamloops Symphony’s Chamber Music series continues with Reeds in the Wind, featuring the KSO’s principal Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon players, Marea Chernoff, Sally Arai, and Olivia Martin.
This concert will take you on an exploration of the sensuous sounds of early 1900s France before being whisked away to hear a fresh voice in classical composition – contemporary American composer Jenni Brandon.
Reeds in the Wind is taking place on Saturday, November 4, 2017, at 7:30 pm in the Thompson Rivers University Alumni Theatre. Tickets are $25, $10 for Students (under 19), and $15 for TD Soundcheck Members (age 19-34).

The trumpet shall sound as we present O Canada on two nights:
Friday, October 27 at 7:30 pm in the Nexus at First, Salmon Arm.

The programme includes two newly commissioned works by Canadian composers in celebration of Canada 150. The first is Tobin Stokes’ Sesquie for Canada’s 150, one of forty works commissioned in collaboration with the Toronto Symphony and partner orchestras hailing from every province to celebrate Canada’s Sesquicentennial. The second is John Estacio’s Trumpet Concerto, commissioned in collaboration with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, Edmonton Symphony, and Calgary Philharmonic.
Western Canada Theatre celebrates the start of its mainstage season with the explosive energy and music of Million Dollar Quartet, playing October 12 to 21 at Sagebrush Theatre. Inspired by the greatest jam session of all time, this rocking musical builds around a warm December evening in 1956 that brought Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins together at Sun Records. They joked, they brawled, and for that one evening, they forget their troubled, complicated lives to do what they loved best: make music. In the process, they made rock ‘n’ roll history!
