To celebrate Spain, the Symphony of the Kootenay will transform into La Sinfonía de los Kootenays for their next performance in Creston.

On Sunday, April 24 at 2 p.m., Symphony of the Kootenays will be performing at the Kootenay River Secondary School theatre

Composers from all around have been captivated by the “Land of the Setting Sun”, and it has inspired some of their best and most evocative music.

“Capriccio Espagnol” is a great example, full of dance rhythms and vitality, it shows every bit of Rimsky-Korsakov’s skill in writing for orchestra.

French composers Chabrier and Bizet also depicted Spain in symphonic music.

The home team won’t be neglected either, with works by Da Falla and Turina filling out the evening.

With all of this excitement in Creston’s local theatre, you won’t need a plane to experience this fiesta! ¡Olé!

Tickets will be sold online only at $25 for adults and $12 for youth (ages 18 and under).
