Nelson Overture Concerts Society celebrates 60th season

Nelson Overture Concerts Society is marking its 60th season of presenting quality classical music to the Kootenays.

Nelson Overture Concerts Society celebrates its 60th season of presenting quality classical music to the Kootenays with a stellar lineup of performers, both well-known artists returning for repeat performances, and emerging artists embarking on promising careers.

The season opens on Saturday, Oct. 17 with the ever-popular Symphony of the Kootenays, including Jeff Faragher, music director, and Nelson native Natasha Hall, violin soloist. On Saturday, Nov. 21 the highly acclaimed Russian-Canadian pianist Sergei Saratovsky, winner of numerous awards, is sure to present a dazzling performance.

Couloir, the harp and cello duo of Heidi Krutzen and Ariel Barnes, shares the stage on Saturday, Feb. 20. Possibly only one of three professional harp and cello duos worldwide, Couloir focuses on connecting with their audience by exploring the spiritual nature of music, depth in music and “getting beyond the notes.”

Nelson favourites, duo sopranos Nancy Argenta and Ingrid Attrot, with pianist Maggie Colet will bring the season to a close on Saturday, March 12 with a concert of glorious solos and duets spanning three centuries of song.

All concerts are at the Capitol Theatre. Series tickets are available through the Capitol by phone or in person starting July 14. They are $75 for adults and $42 for students. Individual tickets, also available online, are $24 for adults and $14 for students. Students from schools participating in the Nelson Overture Concerts Society school outreach program are granted free admission.
