In our 50th Anniversary season, the OSO offered the opportunity to adult singers from the valley to join us as we performed the World Premiere Commission of Quaternity-A Cantata of Seasons by Imant Raminsh and Beethoven's IX Symphony. Over 100 voices travelled the 97 highway each week to come together and sing under Rosemary's direction until we had a cohesive chorus to perform these great works with the OSO.
The experience was so much fun and so rewarding musically and personally that the Chorus has continued with great enthusiasm.
We performed Mozart's Requiem in November 2011 to commemorate Rememberance Day.
December 2012 was the Inaugural Performance of the Okanagan Symphony Youth Chorus with more than 100 voices from 4 schools from Vernon, Penticton, Kelowna and West Kelowna.
In May 2013 the OSO Chorus took to the stage to perform in our "Last Night of the Proms" performance.
In December 2013, choristers joined the OSO musicians to perform Handel's Messiah.
