Symphony of the Kootenays performs in Kimberley

Join the Symphony for a Return to a Night at the Movies

The Symphony of the Kootenays is returning to Kimberley this weekend, and although the orchestra won’t be climbing Northstar Mountain this time, they still have an exciting program to present at McKim Theatre.

The Symphony will perform at McKim this Saturday, June 10 beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The theme of the concert is Return to a Night at the Movies and will feature music from the movies.

The show starts off with the culmination of a season-long journey through Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with Summer featuring SOTK Associate Concertmaster Jeremy VanDieman as soloist.

The first half of the show features an Oscar-worthy lineup of classic pieces that have been featured in films from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Apopalypse Now to that great wealth of classical music: Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Works in the second half feature familiar themes from major movies including Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible and a quick journey through the James Bond franchise.

There are several Kimberley residents performing with the symphony. Sven Hyde and Tim Plait are both playing, and they will be joined by Gwen Davies and Emma MacLeod.

This past February the Symphony of the Kootenays was forced to cancel a program for the first time i their history, due to the massive snowstorm that hit the East Kootenay. The Kimberley show is a makeup show for that missed one.

Tickets for A Night at the Movies are available in advance at Centre 64, the Snowdrift Cafe and the Key City Theatre box office. They will also be available at the door. The Symphony of the Kootenays wishes to thank Alpine Toyota, who are sponsoring half-price youth tickets.
