Colleen Venables!

PVSS student Colleen Venables thrilled audiences up and down the Okanagan Valley this past weekend with her world class violin playing. She was the featured soloist in a joint concert of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra and the Youth Symphony of the Okanagan. These two orchestras include a number of our students and the odd teacher/administrator as well! Colleen has been a member of both orchestras and is now working on her solo career as she prepares to graduate from PVSS and carry on her studies at the post-secondary level. Her parents are both School District #83 employees and are justifiably bursting with pride! A busload of PVSS Music students went to the Vernon performance Sunday night and they are still buzzing about it! Meanwhile Colleen is off to the Montreal Symphony Orchestra concerto auditions with completely different repertoire – Wow! When she’s not travelling the world with her violin Colleen accompanies the PVSS Choir on the piano.
