Experience the greatest hits of all time with the Gary Cable Project and the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra
Okanagan music lovers are in for a treat as the Orchestral Rock Odyssey, a collaboration between the Gary Cable Project and the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, takes over performing halls throughout the region this weekend. Back by popular demand, this show promises to deliver some of the greatest hits of all time, combining the musical prowess of the symphony orchestra with the raw energy of the rock band.
Gary Cable, the talented pianist and keyboard player and the band leader of the Gary Cable Project, describes the orchestra as a “big, beautiful instrument that offers colours and textures that you cannot create in any other way.
“Performing great music in a collaboration between musicians who usually occupy very different lanes is both challenging and exciting,” he says.
The Gary Cable Project features A-list musicians who have worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Aerosmith, Barbra Streisand, and Neil Young. Their musical experience and expertise will bring new life to classic hits from legendary bands like Queen, Supertramp, Chicago, Wings, The Moody Blues, and many more.
Adding to the experience, the Kelowna-based Spectrum Singers will provide the choral backup, creating a perfect harmony of rock band, orchestra, and vocal choir. As Cable says, “This is a show that’s not to be missed. We can’t wait to rock out with you all.”
The show will take place on Friday, March 31, at the Kelowna Community Theatre, Saturday, April 1, at Penticton’s Cleland Community Theatre, and Sunday, April 2, at the newly repaired Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre. This music experience for everyone, from teenagers to centenarians.
