Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: A real treasure

Musaic Ensemble is a real treasure, Penticton. Don’t ever miss another performance

Thank you Musaic Ensemble, all 48 members, plus director Tracy Stuchbery, soloist Mia Harris, Okanagan Symphony members Sarah Anderson, Olivia Walsh, Lucy Benwell, accompianist Dennis Nordlund, internationally renowned UK composer James Whitbourn, and the men who got all the equipment in place, Gentlemen Movers.

The magnificence of all these musicians created such a moving, very powerful, memorable evening, in St. Saviour’s Church, as they presented Annelies, its first performance in B.C.

Annelies is the first adaption of the diary of Anne Frank into a large choral work. The magnificent power of the voices accompanied by equally powerful music for the musicians, all under the direction of Tracy Stuchbery … my oh my! Well done.

Musaic is a real treasure, Penticton. Don’t ever miss another performance. If you are lucky, maybe there is a ticket remaining for Friday’s performance in Oliver, Frank Venables Theatre, at 7:30 p.m. for April 29, or April 30 at St. Michael’s and All Angels, in Kelowna.
