Dauphin's Countryfest

Two seemingly odd musical partners — the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Dauphin’s Countryfest — are teaming up for a special concert in August at the country music jamboree’s festival site.

On Aug. 24, the WSO will perform at the Selo Ukraina site, where Countryfest has made its home the past 25 years, for a show dubbed Symphony Under the Sky.

WSO musical director Alexander Mickelthwate says, in a release, that the orchestra will perform classical pieces from Khachaturian, Brahms and Beethoven and rock ’n’ roll classics from the likes of Elvis Presley.

"In celebration of Countryfest’s 25th anniversary, we’re featuring other special performances this year. Symphony Under the Sky is one of these performances," says Dauphin’s Countryfest president Eric Irwin.

Tickets, including fees and taxes, are $30 for adults and $18 for teens. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets are available online at www.countryfest.com and www.watsonartcentre.com.
