Four soloists will perform with a stunning array of percussion instruments for Kamloops Symphony’s next Masterworks performance Fringe Percussion.

The performance is named after the Vancouver-based quartet Fringe Percussion who are active, professional percussionists. Fringe Percussion was established in 2006 and performs innovative programmes. They appreciate world music and aspire to bring its vitality, beauty and artistry to wider audiences.

Percussionists Jonathan Bernard, Martin Fisk, Colin Van de Reep, and Daniel Tones will perform with Kamloops Symphony for Shchedrin’s highly entertaining arrangement of the music from Bizet’s Carmen.

Shchedrin created this piece, for string orchestra and featured percussion section, with the parts of Bizet’s beloved opera score. Audience members will recognize the melodies, but notice the new form and context in which they are performed.

Fringe percussion is noted for their quality work. They have been recognized by WholeNote Magazine, The Province, and The Georgia Straight. Their music has been broadcast by CBC Radio and Television. They have contributed to innovative research and creation projects supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. Their debut recording was nominated for “Classical Recording of the Year” by the Western Canadian Music Awards.

The programme will also include Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo and Christopher Tyler Nickel’s Of stories told by twilight.

Fringe Percussion is on Saturday, March 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Sagebrush Theatre. Tickets can be purchased from Kamloops Live! Box Office: 250-374-5483 or For more information, visit
