KSO ~ Celebration 200
March 10, 2012
Celebration 200 relects the rich history of our community as we celebrate the 200th anniversary of Fort Kamloops, which was built in September 1812 and the first non-native settlement in Southern BC.
Historic and descriptive music, references to the folk of BC and beyond, First Nations influences and inspiration provided by sights and sounds of our landscape - this program is a tribute to Kamloops' history.
Fort Kamloops was established two hundred years ago on the banks of the Thompson River, which provided a natural highway for the indigenous people as well as the fur traders and voyageurs from Eastern Canada. This program's composers are are all Canadian and reflect the diversity of Canadian Music.
Christopher Weddell, a founding member of the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival is well known for his performances in dozens of Shakespearean roles and as a director and playwright. He recently returned to Kamloops and has quickly become an active member of the arts community. He will perform the speaking parts, which describe the lives of early miners, loggers and railway workers.
