The concert will feature members in a variety of solos.

“There’s always been an underlying aptitude for our musicians to strive for the best, so it’s only natural that we highlight the monumental feats of a few of our talented members with an unforgettable evening of music,” said Dan Reyes, co-president of the orchestra, in a press release.

The orchestra was created in 2008 by a small group of classically trained musicians at the university when they noticed a lack of musical groups on campus at the time. Now it has upwards of 60 members and is the only student-run orchestra in the region.

The concert starts at 7 p.m. in the Shadbolt’s James Cowan Theatre. Tickets are $15 regular, or $10 for students, seniors and children, available through tickets.shadboltcentre.com or 604-205-3000.
