Hear one of Canada's Finest Orchestras
The Kamloops Symphony is thrilled to present the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra with Maestro Bramwell Tovey on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 7:30 pm in the Sagebrush Theatre.
The Grammy and Juno award-winning Vancouver Symphony was founded in 1919, and is the third largest symphony in Canada. They will perform in Kamloops as they embark on a tour of the BC Interior in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, with blockbuster performances of Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony. The VSO will also be performing Bramwell Tovey’s new composition Ancestral Voices, which will show off the talents of Kwagiulth and Stó:lo mezzo-soprano, Marion Newman.
Noted as a “show stealer” mezzo-soprano Marion Newman has been described as having a luscious mezzo soprano voice with a rich, opulent tone, and possessing a captivating vivacity. She has performed in numerous opera roles in Canada and overseas, and has been featured on television five times as a soloist on CBC’s National Aboriginal Achievement Awards. She holds a Bachelor of Music in piano performance from the University of Victoria and a Master of Music with Distinction in vocal performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
Grammy and Juno award-winning conductor/composer Bramwell Tovey was appointed Music Director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in 2000. Under his leadership the VSO has toured to China, Korea, across Canada and the United States. Mr. Tovey is also the Artistic Advisor of the VSO School of Music, a state-of-the-art facility and recital hall next to the Orpheum, the VSO’s historic home.
