Kelowna is hosting a feast for guitar lovers this month, as five of Canada’s finest classical guitarists will perform for the Okanagan Symphony and in concerts as part of the Minds and Music concert series at UBC.
Friday, January 18 starts with a morning show by the exciting Montreal Guitar Trio at the Theatre on UBC’s Okanagan campus. The 10:30 a.m. program is free and open to the public.
That same evening, Daniel Bolshoy will perform Rodrigo’s wonderful Concierto de Aranjuez and the beautiful neo-romantic Concerto in D by Castelnuovo-Tedesco with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra.
Back on campus Wednesday, January 23 at 2 p.m. Alan Rinehart will present the second in a series of three free Minds and Music concerts of Spanish and South American music at the University Centre Ballroom. His program will feature some favourites of exciting and beautiful romantic works for the guitar.
The Minds and Music concert series aims to present the world’s finest music by renowned performers, and put it all into a contemporary context through informal lectures by faculty and artists about the music, its past, and how it relates to the present. The series, which is made possible through the Irving K. Barber Endowment, is free and open to the public.
