Chamber Music Kelowna



2020 - 2021 Season

The BC Restart Plan announced last week by Premier Horgan and Dr. Henry envisions a return to live concerts as the final phase in the Restart. There is presently no announced date for this phase which will begin only when risks of spread of Covd-19 at large gatherings are offset by wide availability of a vaccine or broadly successful treatments. We believe it is unlikely we will arrive at this happy time in the next year – though we want to maintain a hopeful optimism. As soon as the situation improves, we will of course be in touch with you.



George Hyde Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund

George Hyde was a teacher by profession, and served on the Chamber Music Kelowna Board of Directors as Treasurer and later President. He was committed to supporting the performing arts in the community and generously donated funds to be awarded to music students for excellence.

A Classical Music Okanagan Celebrity Turns 80

It is in recognition of Arnold Draper's service to emerging artists and toward the enrichment of the culture of classical music throughout the Okanagan that Chamber Music Kelowna will establish an award in his honor for the purpose of assisting young musicians who may wish to pursue a career in music. 

To this effect, Chamber Music Kelowna plans to establish a fund with the Central Okanagan Foundation. We will update our subscribers on our fundraising events to build this fund in the near future.


Community Outreach Programs

As part of each concert season several of the featured artists will, during their stay, also engage with students in the community.  These programs may include master classes, school performances and open rehearsals.
