The Caetani Centre is opening the doors to the Sveva Caetani Gallery on Dec. 9 to present a matinée of worldly music by local quintet the Wind Jammers.
Featuring established Okanagan musicians Janet Watson on flute, Karen Gibbons on oboe, Lucy Benwell on clarinet, Edmund House on horn and Cuyler Page on bassoon, the Wind Jammers will incorporate music from diverse cultures, composers, styles, instrumentation and eras, pushing the boundaries of wind quintet repertoire.
Expect a diverse selection of music from renaissance to modern, romantic to ragtime, with a few holiday tunes mixed in.
The six continents will be represented with traditional and contemporary music by a variety of composers. The audience will also have the opportunity to see and hear some less familiar instruments such as the piccolo, English horn, hunting horn, bass clarinet, and contrabassoon.
The Sveva Caetani Gallery, located at the Caetani Centre in Vernon, is home to Sveva Caetani’s masterful Recapitulation Series, which will serve as the backdrop to the concert. Read more about the painting series here.
Tickets for the Wind Jammers performance, Dec. 9 at 2 p.m., are $20/adult and $15 for Caetani Centre members and youth 18 and under. Admission is also available at the door, which opens at 1:30 p.m. Some refreshments will be available for purchase.
