President’s Message – October 2022

With the summer giving way to fall and the performance season about to get underway, we want first to let you know how excited we are to see that CMK subscriber renewals are strong for the 2022-23 season. If you are among the more than 200 music lovers who have renewed your seats or made the excellent decision to be come a subscriber this season, please accept our thanks. We will see you on opening night on October 28!


If you purchased a 2022-23 season subscription before the middle of September and requested the tickets be mailed to you, you should already have received them in the mail. If you have NOT, please send an email to Celine ( at the RCA Box Office and she can send you your tickets by email. Alternatively, you can pick them up at the RCA Box Office on the night of the first performance or sooner during regular business hours Monday to Friday.

If you have purchased your season tickets more recently and have not picked them up, they will be mailed out no later than October 7th.

PLEASE NOTE:If your December 3rd tickets show the Rolston String Quartet performing, they will still be good for the performance on the same day by Jonathan Crow (violin) and Philip Chiu (piano). You do not need to change them.

If you are not yet a subscriber, you have two options to ensure a season of beautiful music:

  1. You can still purchase a 5-concert season subscription ($220 for adults) by calling or visiting the Box Office at the RCA. You will receive a 20% discount on single ticket prices and your seats are assured even for sold-out concerts.
  2. You can now purchase single tickets for all our main series concerts online through the RCA website or by phoning or visiting the Box Office at the RCA during regular business hours.

We are expecting several shows in this stellar season to sell out, so act now!

We are sad to report that the Rolston String Quartet, originally announced for our December 3rd concert, has disbanded. We have been fortunate to schedule Jonathan Crow, violin and Philip Chui, piano in their stead. Jonathan is Concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony and Philip performed here in Kelowna last summer, capturing our musical interest. Both are extraordinary Canadian musical talent.

Diane Bond, President
