Welcome to the Green Room
"In show business, the green room is the space in a theatre or similar venue that functions as a waiting room and lounge for performers before, during, and after a performance or show when they are not engaged on stage." from Wikipedia
While we all wait to for Symphony of the Kootenays to get back on stage, join our host, Conductor Jeff Faragher, for an intimate series of converstations and music on a variety of topics that bring Symphony of the Kootenays to life.
Please join the discussion and enjoy the music!
From late February through June, we'll touch on each orchestra section, re-connect with favourite soloists and explore what it means to make music in the Kootenays.
All programs start at 7:30pm Mountain / 6:30pm Pacific time.
They will be available to watch as a video later
