OSO Masterworks: Themes & Innovations - Kelowna Friday, Nov. 22nd 2019 | 7:30PM | Kelowna Community Theatre | All of these works begin with a theme: one borrowed, one created and one taken from the pages of history. Vaughan Williams reached back to the 16th century to create his Fantasia. Elgar created his own enigmatic theme with variations based on each of his close friends. Mark Haney’s bass concerto is a world premiere. Composed especially for our own Meaghan Williams and the OSO, it is inspired by hymn tunes played at a secret World War II meeting between Churchill and Roosevelt in Placentia, Newfoundland.
