Dramatic Opera and Cultural Boost to Kelowna
Opera Kelowna is in their second season as Kelowna's cultural arts company promoting the artistic flair of opera and classical music to all audiences, and especially to the younger generation. This season, they have collaborated with UBCO's "The Faculty Connections Club" and the "Okanagan Young Professionals" to support the fine arts within the younger members of our community. The special events and concerts hosted by Opera Kelowna exposes the members of their Young Patrons Circle to the arts, philanthrophy and community. Their Youth Choir and Ensemble programs offers an educational outreach to talented youth as well as adults who wish to further develop their skills and talents in this area.
Argus Properties, Hotel Eldorado and the Four Points is proud to be the Summer Series sponsors to promote the expression of classic music and opera in the various parks around the community. There are free concerts offered throughout August, leading up to the opera play, "Le Nozze Di Figaro" (The Marriage of Figaro) on August 14th and 15th. The first free concert with a picnic purchase option, "Opera Under the Stars" is on August 2nd at UBCO's ampitheatre, then on August 6th there is an "Opera in the Park" in Guisachan Park, Kelowna, and on August 9th an "Opera in the Park" in Heritage Park, Peachland. These wonderful displays of creativity and music is a great addition to the culture of Kelowna and our surrounding community!
The promotion of a balanced development of character starts with the education in mathematics and sciences, alongside the appreciation and development of the arts. This is what Opera Kelowna is doing, by contributing to the multicultural mix of Kelowna in such a wonderful way!
