We are partnering with the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library to make our virtual concerts available to the community. Thanks to the generous support of sponsors and donors, we are able to provide TNRL users access to archived recordings of earlier concerts.

Says Daniel Mills, KSO Executive Director, “We are so grateful to the Library system for helping us to ensure that our content is viewable by those who might not otherwise have an opportunity to see the Symphony perform, be it for geographic or socio-economic reasons. This partnership will be especially beneficial in reaching all those in urban areas outside of Kamloops within the TNRD.”

Margo Schiller of the TNRL says “We are delighted to partner with the KSO to offer expanded access for our communities. Patrons from across the TNRD can access archived KSO performances through the library’s website at no cost. Music provides much needed entertainment, joy, and hope as we move through the pandemic.”

Access will be provided via the Library’s new website, starting Tuesday, April 27. No logins or passwords will be required. The videos available to view will change over time, and will initially begin with the following:

Igor Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, a theatrical parable of a soldier who is tricked into selling his soul to the devil for the promise of unlimited riches, which was presented in partnership with Western Canada Theatre.

The Phantom of the Opera, the groundbreaking 1925 silent horror film paired with a dramatic new score created by Canadian composer Gabriel Thibaudeau.

Songs & Dances, a vibrant concert experience of folk tunes and moving melodies featuring sweeping, lush music by Canadian composers along with stirring works by Hungarian composers.
