Dancing with Kamloops Symphony Orchestra

Kent had the pleasure of dancing a Viennese Waltz with Annette Dominik of the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, January 16, 2010.

During the performance of the "Lustschwarmer" Waltz as led by KSO conductor and music director, Bruce Dunn during The Magic of Vienna concert, Annette set aside her violin (as Principal 2nd Violinist), came down to the audience, picked Kent and Viennese waltzed for about 2 minutes at the foot of the orchestra!

Actually, it was all set up as Annette had asked her friend, Kent a day or two ago if he would help her add some fun and levity to the program. As Kent has been dancing and instructing ballroom dance since 1989 and as Annette had been part of the ballroom dance world at one point, he quickly agreed to it to add something different to the programming (and yes, Bruce Dunn DID ok this!).
