Due to the Theatre being closed and perhaps opening to limited capacity, we have rescheduled our artists and limited our membership to 700. We are not taking in any new members until we move into Phase 4 - maybe. These are the new dates for our 2020-2021 season which will overlap with our 2021-22 season

Season 2020 - 2022


These charismatic musicians recreate the sound, look, energy, and humour of The Beatles. The four lads take the audience on a nostalgia-filled trip through the masterful Sgt. Pepper’s and later albums like “Abbey Road” and “Let It Be.” With multiple wardrobe changes, choreographed lighting, visual effects, and multimedia, they create a live concert experience that has induced laughing, crying, and even some screaming for more. A headliner on Royal Caribbean International Cruises, the band was voted Best Musical Act. One traveler wrote: “As many Beatles tribute bands I've seen – and I’ve seen a lot – the Beatlemaniacs are truly the best out there’”

The Young Beethoven

We are celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth with a closer look at his music before he turned 30 and became one of classical music’s all-time greats. Bringing the young Beethoven to life is an eleven-member Vancouver ensemble, headed by violinist Nancy DiNovo and clarinetist José Franche-Ballester. Among the featured works is the famous Septet in E-flat Major, Opus 20, written for strings and winds. Beethoven himself wrote, “I wish they would burn the piece... nobody is listening to anything else I have written.” Impresario and raconteur, George Zukerman will introduce and narrate the program.

The 5 Browns

The five Brown siblings (dubbed “the Fab Five” by People Magazine) return to Kelowna to share their five-piano arrangements of festive Christmas music written through the ages. Ryan, Melody, Gregory, Deondra and Desirae Brown were the first family of five to attend the Juilliard School simultaneously. Their individual and collective careers have taken them around the world, performing with orchestras, as soloists, duos and as “The 5 Browns.” Their complex arrangements of classical, jazz and popular favorites reveal their deep connection to the music and fulfill their desire to wake up classical music by introducing it to the largest audience possible.
