President’s Message – November 2022
Dear Friends –
We hope you enjoyed the wonderful recital by Charles Richard-Hamelin on October 28th. What an exciting Canadian pianist! A review of this stellar evening by Joe Berarducci is featured on our website.
In this and upcoming newsletters, we’ll be sharing with you some of the successes of our sponsorship program for the 2022-23 season. In addition to welcoming back renewing sponsors Canada West Realty, Odlum Brown, Pushor Mitchell and Valley First, we are delighted that Bergson Dwyer Group, Petraroia Langford LLP, the UBCO Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies and Wells Gray Tours have joined us. In the next item, you’ll read about Valley First’s innovative partnership with CMK to support the Food Bank through the “Feed the Valley” program.
With our December 3rd concert fast approaching, we want to remind subscribers and ticket purchasers about the substitution of Jonathan Crow, violin & Philip Chui, piano for the originally-announced-but-now-disbanded Rolston String Quartet. We are particularly pleased to welcome Jonathan Crow back to his home province of British Columbia. These two acclaimed artists will offer an unforgettable evening of music to welcome the holiday season.
Just a reminder that, if you purchased a single ticket to the October 28, you can still upgrade to a 5-concert season subscription ($220 for adults) by calling or visiting the Box Office at the RCA by November 25th. You will receive a 20% discount on single ticket prices and your seats are assured even for sold-out concerts.
Stay warm and we look forward to seeing you on December 3rd!
