Media Release Encore 2012 Kelowna Feb 21/22
Well over 200 performers are counting down to Encore, Feb 21 and 22 at 7 at the Kelowna Community Theatre.
ENCORE 2012 is a music extravaganza starring the students of the KSS Music program with special guest Robert Fine and guest MCs Rosemary Thompson and Marion Barschal. Over 250 students performing in 18 different groups - ranging from chamber choir to concert band, jazz, R & B and orchestral music – will appear at the Kelowna Community Theatre on Tuesday, February 21st and Wednesday, February 22ND. Each night will offer a unique programme and music experience.
Guest MCs Rosemary Thompson and Marion Barschal will provide animated and informed musical commentary throughout the evenings and Rosemary will be conducting our very own Night Owl Orchestra.
As a KSS ENCORE first, local jazz musician, Robert Fine will perform both independently and alongside selected student groups. “It will be a night to remember and I have already connected with some of the students – it’s going to be a great event”* says Fine.
Young and old will love the music and be inspired by the KSS music students. The KSS music department students are capably led by well-known and much loved conductors Neil Wong and Sheila French.
Tickets are available from the KSS school office, on-line orders or at the door. The Box office opens at 6:30 pm and show time is 7 pm. All proceeds will go to the KSS music program. These funds go towards high quality music and instrument purchase and repair to ensure the KSS music department opportunities are available for all students who want to participate.
Tickets are $ 15 for adults, $ 10 for seniors and $ 5 for students – discounts for those able to attend both nights.
