Kamloops Symphony Presents: Brazen

Kamloops Symphony’s next Classic Series
performance is on Saturday, April 11 at Sagebrush Theatre.

The programme is appropriately named Brazen after Jeffrey Ryan’s Brazen Concerto for Saxophone. Ryan, a Vancouver-based composer, was commissioned to write the piece by Kamloops Symphony’s guest soloist Julia Nolan.

This Classic Series performance will be at Sagebrush Theatre on Saturday, April 11 at 7:30 pm. Buy tickets at the door, at Kamloops Live! Box Office: 250-374-5483 or 1-866-374-5483, or online at www.kamloopslive.ca. This performance is sponsored by Best Western Plus and CFJC TV7.

Jodi is originally from Montréal, Quebec but spent a few years in Northern New Brunswick after graduating from University. She moved to Kamloops in the Spring of 2010 with her family and works as an educational assistant. Her 7 and 8 year old keep her really busy as they love exploring the area and enjoying what Kamloops has to offer!
