SOTK's Pandemic Project
While we cannot physically meet to perform great orchestral music for the Kootenays community in person due to the covid-19 pandemic, the musicians of the Symphony of the Kootenays came together virtually to bring you Beethoven's contemplative and exaltant Allegretto from his Symphony No. 7. During this multi-month project, our stage moved to Zoom from our usual haunts: Cranbrook's Key City Theatre, the Creston Concert Society, Nelson's Capitol Theatre, and the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail.
We offer this performance to our audiences as our commemoration of these unprecedented difficult times, and look forward to the day when we will be back on stage together to perform in the Kootenays.
A sincere thanks to Creston Concert Society for their generous support of our musicians in this project. Many thanks to SOTK principal oboist Aura Pon for her tireless work putting this together, SOTK Music Director Jeff Faragher and our wonderful musicians for their fine contributions.
SOTK is looking forward to being on stage again. Unfortunately, at this point, we don't know when that will be. However, the Board continues to work toward having orchestral music on Kootenay stages once again. Have any questions? Please reach out to us
Dinner Out & A Show At Home
The pandemic has been very hard on small businesses, particularly the hospitality industry. These restaurants in Cranbrook have supported SOTK and we ask that you support them during this difficult time. Dine in, take out, whatever you prefer. Unfortunately, you'll have to take in the show at home for now.
SOTK thanks all our partner restaurants for their generous support of the Symphony and performing arts in the Kootenays!
