Old Courthouse Chamber Music Series: Baroque to the Beatles

Kamloops, B.C. - The Chamber Musicians of Kamloops Society invites residents to attend the grand finale of their City-sponsored concert series at the historic courtroom in the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre at 7 Seymour Street West, on Thursday, November 22nd at 7:00 pm.

Fish on Five, an Okanagan-based brass quintet, will perform an eclectic and exhilarating program including Baroque classics, opera arrangements, band favourites, soulful blues, jazz standards, folk songs and the Beatles. The members of the quintet - Jim Howie and Denis Colpitts, (trumpets), Edmund House, (french horn), Wade Dorsey, (trombone), and Reynold Epp, (tuba) - are not only musical collaborators but also fishing buddies; hence the name.

Admission is by donation and all are warmly invited.

The concert is sponsored by the City of Kamloops, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department in partnership with the Chamber Musicians of Kamloops. All proceeds will benefit the Boogie the Bridge Cultural Fund, which makes arts and culture accessible to the children and youth of Kamloops.

This concert is part of a ten-concert series of chamber concerts presented in celebration of the bicentenary of the founding of Fort Kamloops. Free parking is available. The building is wheelchair accessible at the rear entrance.
