Okanagan classical musicians are joining together on Oct. 20 to present Songs of Autumn, an evening of music inspired by the season.

Enjoy music from medieval to modern classical, followed by an artists’ reception with complimentary mulled apple cider and displays featuring local artists Elaine Watts, watercolour; Amy Mitchell, photography; Domino Masquerade Studios, film; Sheila Johnson, fibre art and Sophia Zang, pottery.

Musicians include Masterworks Ensemble featuring Tracy Fehr, lyric colouratura soprano, Dennis Nordlund, piano, Elizabeth Lupton, violin, and Bob Park lute. Seraphim Vocal Ensemble members are Tracy Fehr, Heather Allen, Jay Demetrick and Derek Beaton. Singers from Vernon, Natalia Polchenko and Alex Wedensky, and up and coming Okanagan talent, Samantha Dougherty and Elise Wiesinger, will also be featured at the event.

Partial proceeds from the concert go towards Penticton’s Soupateria. Concert-goers are invited to bring garden produce to add to a fall display that will be given to the charity.

“At this time of year of harvest and Thanksgiving, we are thrilled to be able share not only music and art, but to give back to the community as well,” said Fehr.

Songs for Autumn takes place on Friday, Oct. 20, 7:30 p.m. at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, 1370 Church St., Penticton. Tickets are $30 or $25 for seniors/youth, on sale at The Book Shop on Main and at the Penticton Arts Council office and at the door.
