A Nelson Overture Concerts Society Presentation!

The Symphony of the Kootenays returns to Nelson with a programme that includes Beethoven’s Leonore Overture, the Brahms second Symphony, and Nelson flutist Catherine MacKinnon, Kimberley native Tim Plait on keyboard, and concertmaster Cvetozar Vutez, violin, performing Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5.

The Kootenays is the smallest community in Canada to host a professional symphony orchestra. Through the efforts of artistic and musical director, Jeff Farragher, the Symphony participates in an active educational outreach program, bringing classical orchestra music to the classroom. The orchestra has entertained more than 80,000 audience members, employed more than 5,500 musicians playing more than 600 pieces in more than 225 concerts.
