Nelson Overture presents Symphony of the Kootenays

The Symphony is a professional orchestra comprised of musicians, the majority of whom live right here in the Kootenays.

The Nelson Overture Concerts Society is delighted to be bringing Nelson concert goers the ever popular Symphony of the Kootenays on Saturday, April 21, at 8 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre. The Symphony of the Kootenays is a professional and celebrated cornerstone of the regional music and cultural scene of the Kootenays. The Symphony is a professional orchestra comprised of musicians, the majority of whom live right here in the Kootenays.

The Symphony of the Kootenays provides concerts and performances throughout the region, performed by its musicians and guest artists who strive for the highest possible artistic standards.

The Symphony also provides educational opportunities to the youth of the Kootenays to enhance their awareness and appreciation of, as well as participation in classical music.

This supports the Nelson Overture Concerts Society’s mandate to encourage and support the youth of Nelson to not only appreciate but possibly pursue classical music endeavors.

At the concert on April 21, the Symphony Orchestra will be joined by Anna Petrova. Petrova performs widely as soloist and chamber musician in North America, Europe and the Far East.

The Symphony will perform under the direction of conductor Bruce Dunn who has been Music Director of our Symphony on the Kootenays for 13 years; and he claims to have been embraced by both the Symphony and the Kootenays! The program will include Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 and Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1. The Nelson Overture Concerts Society is thrilled to have the privilege of bringing the Symphony of the Kootenays to the music lovers of Nelson!
