Water music on the waterfront or in the hall
Don your royal garb and head to Marine Park for a free performance of Handel’s Water Music at 7 p.m. this Friday, Aug. 30.
If it's raining, go to First United Church on Okanagan instead.
This concert fit for a king is an extension of the Wednesday on the Wharf program and will be performed by members of the Chamber Musicians of Kamloops with the Brandenburg Orchestra.
George Frederick Handel’s Water Music is a set of suites that was originally performed for a huge royal party held by King George I of England on July 17, 1717.
The party was held with guests and 50 musicians on the royal barge, floating down the River Thames and joined by many other boats that crowded the river for a view of the spectacle.
Chamber Musicians of Kamloops is a group of professional musicians who promote chamber music in different settings, including private house concerts.
The Brandenburg Orchestra is a group of amateur musicians who enjoy playing the various Brandenburg Concerti by J.S. Bach. They are joining together under the direction of Kamloops and Okanagan violinist Cvetozar Vutev.
The 34-piece band consisting of strings, trumpets, flutes, oboe, French horn, bassoon and keyboard will perform in period costume at the Marine Park gazebo.
