OSO: Viennese Delights - Masterwork III
We welcome back singers from Nancy Hermiston's acclaimed UBC Opera Ensemble for a new year's tradition of Viennese delights. The charming melodies of Lehar's whimsical Merry Widow and Strauss' hilarious Die Fledermaus make them favourites of the operetta stage. No Viennese evening would be complete without gorgeous waltzes performed with dancers from City Dance Studio. Come in your favourite ball gown for a magical evening of song and dance.
Guest Artists: EBC Opera Ensemble, City Dance Studio

Johann Strauss Jr An der schonen blauen Donau, Op. 314#

At the heart of the OSO we strive to create opportunity for everyone in our community. To inspire people of all ages with the beauty and magic of live orchestral music. We understand not everyone can attend one of our evening performances and because of this we open up Friday afternoon rehearsals for various Masterworks concert series. If you are someone who can’t make an evening performance please consider attending one of our Open Dress rehearsals. Rehearsals start at 2 pm on a performance Friday and take place at the Kelowna Community Theater ending by 4:30 pm. You do not need a ticket and it is a come and go as you please. A suggested $10 donation per person is appreciated.
If you have any other questions please contact the OSO office at 250-763-7455
