Okanagan Symphony Orchestra presents
featuring Cris Derksen (cello)
Performed at Kelowna Community Theatre
Juno-nominated Cris Derksen is an internationally respected Indigenous cellist and composer. Hailing from a line of chiefs from North Tall Cree Reserve on her father’s side and a line of strong Mennonite homesteaders on her mother’s, Dersken braids the traditional and contemporary, weaving her classical background and her Indigenous ancestry together with new school electronics to create genre-defying music.
