Hi, everyone!

Thanks so much for this! I’m very proud that we’ve played MANY concerts in the Foothills, including right in Turner Valley! With the renovation of the Flare ‘n Derrick now complete, we’re hoping to return soon!

We will be back in Okotoks on March 23 (Saturday evening) at the United Church, bringing with us two amazing soloists. Calgary’s own 17-year old Cameron Wong will play the Oboe Concerto by Richard Strauss, and Coloratura Soprano Nansee Hughes (from Canmore) will sing Strauss’s Frühlingstimmen and Glière’s Concerto for Coloratura Soprano. We’ll round out the evening with Robert Schumann’s Symphony #1, nicknamed “Spring”.

As always, tix at the usual place: http://www.rockymountainsymphony.ca

Hope to see everyone there!
