100 Mile Festival of the Arts is organizing a classical concert tour to Kamloops, so people can enjoy a symphony concert at a discount price.
The Kamloops Symphony Orchestra plays at the Sagebrush Theatre in Kamloops on Sept. 29, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 “Emperor” and Schubert’s Symphony No. 4 “Tragic” will be on the program.
Festival of the Arts successfully put together a similar tour last year and concert organizer Anthony Lau would like to see it happen again.
“Listening to a live performance of a symphony is a memorable and thrilling experience, especially for young music students.”
At the age of 14, Lau adds, he was moved to tears when he heard a full orchestra perform.
Those who are interested in attending the concert can contact Lau via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
