Attendees will have the opportunity to peruse the art and indulge in a wine and charcuterie pairing as The Apple Blossom Duo of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra performs.

Ashley Kroecher and Sarah Anderson are violin and viola duos living in Kelowna who perform various styles such as classical, folk and jazz.

They have both played extensively throughout the interior of BC, including with the Okanagan and Kamloops Symphony Orchestras.
