In celebration of the extraordinary string programs that flourish in the Okanagan, "The String's the Thing" will feature young string players from throughout the valley.

We celebrate the extraordinary talent of our young string players throughout the Okanagan and are thrilled to give this opportunity for our young audiences to see themselves reflected on our stages. We hope to inspire the dream in each listener that "maybe I could do that too"!
