Introducing their first Family Matinee Young People’s Concerts, the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra brings the award-winning production of How The Gimquat Found Her Song by Platypus Theatre to the Okanagan on Feb. 19 and 20.

“A world of wizardry, magic spells and travelling through time is a musical play involving two actors and orchestra”, said Scott Wilson, general manager of the OSO.

“At once a concert, a story of self-discovery and a vivid, effortless lesson in the history of western music told in Dr. Seuss-like verse, this modern classic continues to garner rave reviews and keep audiences of all ages spellbound,” he explains.

“How The Gimquat Found Her Song” is a one-hour show designed for young people between the ages of two and 12 and their families, yet has considerable appeal for all ages.

The Gimquat is a very rare bird, sassy and spirited in character. Children relate to her unreservedly.

In search of her own song, she is discovered by a magical musical wizard, who aids her in her quest. Together they travel back in time, visiting a cathedral, a lively renaissance market place and the eras of Bach, Mozart, Berlioz and Brahms through to present day Rap.

The orchestra demonstrates each musical era.

Tickets for the Kelowna performances are available at SelectYourTickets.com or by calling 250-717-5304.
