KELOWNA - The outdoor amphitheatre at Mission Hill provides top-notch acoustics and world-class views in an intimate setting.

It’s perfectly suited to showcase larger than life acts and, in years past, has offered audiences unforgettable shows with highlights like Tony Bennett and Melissa Ethridge taking the stage.

This year’s Live at Mission Hill Concert Series line-up is similarly impressive and this month Doobie Brothers member Michael McDonald will perform, as well as David Foster.

While the venue has made a name for itself by showcasing some of the brightest stars in music, there’s always new ground to take on and in August the winery will work in concert with Opera Kelowna to offer Opera in the Vines.

Visitors will be invited to the amphitheatre to bask in the captivating performances of world-class vocalists accompanied by a 17-piece orchestra led by esteemed music director Bernard McDonald. This exquisite evening will include beautiful arias from La Bohème, Madam Butterfly, Carmen, The Pearl Fishers, La Traviata, and more.

“Mission Hill’s outdoor Amphitheatre offers a concert experience unlike any other in the Okanagan,” said Darryl Brooker, president of Mission Hill Family Estate.

“Its intimate hilltop location, backdropped with sweeping vineyard views, offers an unparalleled experience – especially when paired with world-class cuisine and Mission Hill’s award-winning wines. We’re thrilled to welcome another season of incredible performers to the winery this summer.”
