Yes, we are back and couldn’t be happier to share a full season of exciting programming with you! Attending a live concert is always an opportunity to take a break from our ever-busy lives and experience a moment of relaxation, bliss or...astonishment. Get ready to be uplifted, moved, and inspired by our 2022/23 Season.

From performing works of Mozart to Philip Glass, to sharing the stage with outstanding guest artists, every concert of our 46th season will highlight the outstanding quality of our orchestra's musicians.

We open our season with the New World Festival. Over this multi-day event, you will not only get to hear some of Dvořák’s greatest works, but you will experience your orchestra with a Hip-Hop twist, thanks to Cree artist K.A.S.P.

Always eager to present works by talented Canadian composers, we will perform works by Samy Moussa, Kelly-Marie Murphy, and Violet Archer. The KSO Chorus will also join us for two remarkable works: BrahmsGerman Requiem as well as Beethoven's beloved Symphony No. 9.

In our pops series, Jim Witter makes his return to Kamloops to pay tribute to Elton John & Billy Joel and Juno nominee Sarah Slean joins us for International Women’s Day with a selection of her own songs and Joni Mitchell favourites. Finally, Thorgy and the Thorchestra, a one-of-a-kind concert, will feature the fierce and fabulous drag queen Thorgy Thor!

The musicians of the orchestra and I are eager to share these concerts with you, where high artistry will bring electricity to the stage! And we can’t wait for you to join us.
