Spanish musician Rubén Portillo is one of the many artists performing in the Music on Sunday and the Harvest of Music series at TOSH this coming Fall. Portillo will play on October 18.

Two series for one great price

The Old School House Arts Centre says thank you to loyal customers by combining Music on Sunday and Harvest of Music into one subscription

The Old School House Arts Centre is thanking local residents for their loyalty to the Music on Sunday concert series with a sweet deal.

This year, a season subscription to the Fall 2015 Music on Sunday series also includes the three Harvest of Music Festival concerts in the same low-price ticket.

“We’ve always had repeat customers,” said TOSH music director Ron Hadley. “Why not give some benefit?”

“It’s benefit with a capitol ‘B,’” he added.

The two series are normally sold as separate subscriptions, with the Music on Sunday series having 12 concerts and the Harvest of Music Festival having three.

Holders of the new combined season ticket, however, will gain entry to all 15 concerts for $157.50. Those who purchase a subscription also get to choose their seat for the season.

Hadley said the Harvest of Music workshops are not included in the subscription price. These must be purchased separately.

The musical selection in the combined series focuses mainly on classical and jazz performed by both national and international musicians, starting with classical pianist Sara Davis Buechner on Sept. 20. Several other groups making the trek to Qualicum will be the Tom Keenlyside Quartet and the returning Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet.

There will also be a flamenco concert and demonstration set for Oct. 18 with guitarist Ruben Portillo, dancer Sandra Cisneros and percussionist Davide Sampaolo.

“I’m really excited about all of them,” said Hadley. “These are top-flight professional musicians.”

As usual, the Fall 2015 Music on Sunday concerts will be held on Sunday afternoons at 2:30 p.m.

For the Harvest of Music shows, which in October, there will be a Friday evening concert and Saturday shows at noon and 2:30 p.m.

The combined subscription is available for purchase at the gallery now. You can also call TOSH at 250-752-6133. Subscriptions must be reserved and paid for by Sept. 1.

For those wishing to buy tickets to individual concerts, they will be available to do so at TOSH starting on Sunday, June 7 at 1:30 p.m.

For more information, call TOSH at 250-752-6133.
