Orchestra plays Parksville

The Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra will be performing a program of classical music for strings Nov. 10  at 2:30 p.m. at St. Edmunds Anglican Church in Parksville and 7:30 p.m. at Brechin United Church in Nanaimo on Nov. 11.

The program, entitled Oboe to Go, features Pippa Williams who will play the Marcello Oboe Concerto.  Williams studied oboe with Melvin Berman and Richard Dorsey and piano with William Aide at the University of Toronto. She has been Principal Oboist with the Vancouver Island Symphony since 1995.

Under the guidance of musical director Karl Rainer, the orchestra continues to support young strings musicians in the area and always has a new contingent of good young players each season.
