Light Classics for a Summer Evening

Thursday, July 9th at 7:30pm at St. Michael & All Angels’ Church, 608 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna

Don’t miss a highly entertaining concert with the OSO’s Rosemary Thomson, and the faculty from the Okanagan School of the Arts ‘Strings the Thing’ summer camp, including local violinists John Suderman and Elizabeth Lupton, one of BC’s leading cello teachers’ Joel Stobbe, and the entertaining Calvin Dyck.

Highlights from the concert will include “Ferdinand the Bull” for Speaker and solo violin, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” which will include batting practice and an altercation with the “umpire,” and favourite movements from the Haydn Sunrise Quartet, and Beethoven’s famous Op. 18 in G. Rosemary Thomson will be featured in the Widor Piano Quintet and the ever-popular “Hungarian Dance No. 5.”

Calvin Dyck and Adeline Bojczuk will be featured in the last movement of Bach’s “Double Violin Concerto” and there will be other surprises from Telemann, Bartok and Schmeltzer.

‘Strings the Thing’ is an annual string camp at the Shatford Centre in Penticton with close to 25 students from the Okanagan, the Fraser Valley and Washington. The camp focuses on chamber music, an orchestra component, seminars and masterclasses. The students range in age from 6 to 66 and in ability from beginner to advanced. Former members of the camp have gone on to various university programs, and some are regularly playing in professional orchestras.

The music camp is both a positive learning environment and a celebration of great music as the students explore the challenges of making music together.

The faculty concert will take place on Thursday, July 9 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Michael & All Angels’ Church. Tickets available at the door: Adults $15, Students $5. For information call 250-770-7668.
