The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is planning a blockbuster for their next performance with some of the greatest movie music ever written.

The program pays tribute to the classical composers who transcended genres and eras to make it on the big screen, as well as celebrated Hollywood classics like Henri Mancini and contemporary score masters John Williams, who made the Harry Potter themes famous. As well, the symphony welcomes the Okanagan’s own Melissa Wilmot to bring the beautiful Chaconne from The Red Violin to life.

The OSO is bringing their red carpet extravaganza to Penticton on Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Cleland Theatre. Tickets are available from the Wine Country Information Centre or by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
