Help support the OSO continue to bring live orchestral music to the okanagan.  Your support directly contributes to our Concerts, OSYO, and many more education & outreach programs.


Welcome to the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra’s 59th Season! With my colleagues at the OSO, I am excited to present our programming for the 2018/2019 concerts. I hope that you will find these programs as exhilarating as I do.

In our Masterworks Series, with continued sponsorship by The Chase Wines, you will find a variety of programming from great classical orchestral standards like Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms to favourite French composers and a blockbuster Russian program. We commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice day with Verdi’s masterpiece Messa da requiem and bring back a celebration of Asian Heritage Month with an Asian Fusion program. Join me one hour before each Masterworks program for a pre-concert chat at Concert Close-up.

We are proud to present wonderful soloists: returning favourites like violinist Lara St. John, established Canadian artists like pianist Jane Coop and Canada’s up-and-coming stars like the Okanagan’s own Jaeden lzik-Dzurko.
Our specials this season have something for everyone. We are thrilled to present Tanya Tagaq with the OSO for a powerful evening. We explore more contemporary pops music in our 050 at the Oscars® and Yuletide Tales, welcoming back our own Okanagan Symphony Youth Chorus.
We have an array of family programming including The Music of Harry Potter, as well as the return of Symphony Storytime for our youngest listeners. Check out the many ways you can become part of the 050 through our Education and Outreach programs, sponsorship, donations, and by volunteering. Best of all, join us for the magic of live music through this season where you will See it … Hear it … Love it …
