The Kamloops Symphony invites you to join them at their annual celebration of the festive season, Christmas with the KSO. There are two performances of this classic holiday concert; Saturday, December 16 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, December 17 at 2:00 pm, in the Sagebrush Theatre.
Joining the KSO on stage is Guest Artist Anne-Marie MacIntosh, soprano. Known for her effervescent coloratura and dramatic vivacity, MacIntosh is an exciting new face in Canada’s opera scene. Originally from Langley, British Columbia, she has performed numerous roles across Canada as well as overseas in the Czech Republic, Italy, and China over the past several years.
Christmas with the KSO also features the KSO Chorus, who will perform the perennial favourite Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah, as well as other beloved festive holiday classics.
Leading the orchestra and chorus is Guest Conductor, Scott Seaton. Praised as a conductor with finesse, clarity, and precision, Seaton has conducted orchestras spanning North America, South America, and Europe. He is entering his third season as Music Director of the North State Symphony, and was recently named Principal Conductor of the Veridian Symphony Orchestra and the Bel Canto Singers.
Christmas with the KSO will include a feast of festive music that is fun for the whole family. Highlights include Tchaikovsky’s March from the Nutcracker, music from A Charlie Brown Christmas, and an audience sing along.
You can also get a behind the scenes look at the orchestra preparing for the concert with this season’s first BDO Open Dress rehearsal, Saturday, December 16 at 1:00 pm in the Sagebrush Theatre.
