Kick off Christmas Season with Chamber Music at the Old Courthouse

Kamloops, B.C. – The City of Kamloops would like to invite residents to attend the first Christmas Chamber Music Recital at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre.

The Chamber Musicians of Kamloops Society presents a delightful selection of seasonal and festive instrumental and choral music. Three local groups consist of Vivace Chorale, Trio con brio (brass ensemble) and Kamloops String Quartet. The concert takes place on Thursday, December 1st at 7:00 pm.

The Chamber Musicians of Kamloops Society was formed two years ago to provide more performance opportunities for local musicians as well as offering audiences an informal introduction to chamber music. Since then, many recitals have been held in local homes and community venues.

The concert is sponsored by the City of Kamloops, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services. Admission is by donation, making this accessible to everyone. All proceeds from the recital go toward Boogie the Boogie the Bridge Cultural Fund, making arts and culture accessible for children and youth of Kamloops.

"The Society is very excited to be performing in this wonderful heritage venue. We invite you to bring in the Christmas season and discover chamber music at the Old Courthouse," said Robin Suddaby, Chair of the Chamber Musicians of Kamloops Society.

The Old Courthouse is located at 7 Seymour Street West. The building is wheelchair accessible at the rear entrance.
