Something Wicked This Way Comes
Harry’s Wondrous World
Harry Potter took the world by storm - first in the books, then in the movies, now in the music. Kids only need to hear a few notes of John Williams’ iconic score to conjure up images of Hedwig’s flight and Diagon Alley. The magic of Harry Potter will be brought to life in readings and music with two wonderful young actors and the OSO. Come in costume and let us whisk you away to Harry’s Wondrous World.

Of all the musical settings of the Latin Mass for the Dead, Verdi’s ‘Requiem’ is the most iconic. By turns dramatically terrifying and transcendent, it is often called ‘an opera in disguise’. With four of Canada’s leading operatic soloists, a massed choir of 150 voices and the full power of the OSO, this performance will deliver an exhilarating experience. November 2018 marks the centenary of Armistice Day and we commemorate this historical occasion with the Okanagan premiere of this masterpiece.

NOVEMBER SHOW | EDUCATION
Symphony Storytime is a wonderful way to introduce your pre-schooler to the magic of live orchestral music. Master educator, Joe Berarducci leads these story based forty minute interactive concerts with OSO and OSYO quartets at First United Church in Kelowna. Your whole family can join in singing, dancing and playing percussion instruments while engaging in folk tales and nursery rhymes.
What a great way to meet the families of the orchestra!
