We invite you to join us at our annual celebration of the festive season, Christmas with the KSO. There are two performances of this classic holiday concert; Saturday, December 14 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, December 15 at 2:00 pm in Sagebrush Theatre.

Christmas with the KSO features familiar festive favourites and heartwarming melodies that are sure to delight the whole family, presented with a Quebecois twist. Joining the KSO on stage is the Quebec-based vocal quartet Quartom. Formed by four charming and charismatic singers, the quartet’s insightful interpretations, mutual affection, and contagious good humour has charmed audiences across Canada and throughout Europe and Asia. Quartom will be singing several sparkling holiday hits along with traditional Quebec carols.

Leading the KSO is guest conductor Michael Newnham, who is known for his intense and inspiring conducting style. He is presently the music director of Symphony New Brunswick, Camerata NB, and the Peterborough Symphony Orchestra. He has received several awards for conducting, including the Turzanski Award for his services in promoting Polish music and culture in Canada.

Audience members can get a behind the scenes look at the orchestra preparing for the concert with the first Open Dress Rehearsal of the 19/20 season on Saturday, December 14 at 1:00 pm in Sagebrush Theatre. This rehearsal is open to the public at no cost, sponsored by BDO.
