Don’’t miss a delightful concert with Rosemary Thomson (music director of the Okanagan Symphony), and the faculty from “Strings the Thing” summer camp, including local violinists John Suderman and Sandra Wilmot, one of BC’s leading cello teachers’ Joel Stobbe, and the entertaining Calvin Dyck.

Highlights from the concert will include Vivaldi’s “Concerto for Four Violins”,
“Summer” from the Four Seasons featuring Adeline Bojczuk, a Beethoven Trio
featuring cellist Olivia Walsh, Paganini’s famous “Caprice No. 24”, the exquisite
“Spiegel im Spiegel” by Avro Part, and the iconic “James Bond theme”.

The audience will be invited to participate by providing the ‘cannon shots’ by
popping paper lunch bags in an arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture”.
Registrations are up 30% this year at “Strings the Thing”; an annual string camp
at the Shatford Centre in Penticton with close to 40 students from the Okanagan,
the Fraser Valley and Washington. The camp focuses on chamber music, an
orchestra repertoire, seminars and masterclasses. The students range in age from 6

Centre. Tickets at the door: Adults $15, Students $5 Information: 250.770.7668
