Richmond Orchestra and Chorus is entering its 28th season
The Richmond Orchestra and Chorus is promising a diverse offering of music over six concerts in its 2013-2014 season.
Its 28th season will feature everything from shared concerts with EnChor Choir and Richmond Youth Honour Choir to a celebration of music from the movies.
First up is Together in Song with EnChor, set for Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at Fraserview Mennonite Brethren Church.
Other concerts: ROCA Family Christmas on Dec. 7 at Fraserview; Rising Stars on Feb. 15, 2014 at Richmond Pentecostal Church; All Creatures Great and Small with Richmond Youth Honour Choir on March 8, 2014 at Fraserview; Beethoven! on May 3 at Richmond Pentecostal Church; and a Night at the Movies on June 7, 2014 at Fraserview.
The orchestra will also join with a Juno-award-winning singer and sought-after songwriter in a special performance at the Richmond Hospital Foundation’s Starlight Gala Oct. 19. Chantal Kreviazuk is set to perform at the foundation’s signature $400-a-ticket event—now sold out—and will be joined by local musicians on the River Rock Show Theatre stage.
The community orchestra’s 40 members are known for hosting notable guest soloists, but collaborating with Kreviazuk is “huge,” said conductor James Malmberg.
Richmond Orchestra and Chorus season tickets are $90 for adults and $75 for seniors and students.
Tickets for individual shows are $6 to $18 (free for children under six). Call 604-276-2747 or visit roca.ca.
