Symphony of the Kootenays: A World of Joy – rehearsals

Symphony of the Kootenays Rehearsal, Cranbrook Alliance Church Saturday November 30, 2013, 12md – 13:30.   

SOTK Nov 30 2013 poster Inviting patrons to the rehearsal, what a great idea. I think the Symphony has come up with a winner with this one and I think the patrons at the rehearsal would agree. There was a good crowd in this spectacular church for the snippets of what was promising to be an outstanding concert. The orchestra and choir look great and the lighting and sound was excellent (thanks to Dean Siewert and Len Palajak). I would go so far as to the say that the lighting, in particular, was more than a notch above similar efforts at the Key City Theatre. Visually the black backdrop with the lights on the musicians gave depth, contrast and definition to the scene. I know it is probably a lot more work to present the Symphony in the Alliance Church but I feel it is a more suitable venue than the Key City Theatre. I am sure I missed a great concert later that evening but, because of prior engagements,  unfortunately I was unable to attend. Definitely my loss. However, here are some images of the rehearsal that I would like to share with fellow patrons.  The Orchestra

and sharing his special brand of joy, the conductor Jeff Faragher.
