The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra held its annual general meeting Wednesday to report on the 2014-2015 season.

The year had a surplus of $3,043 and saw steady corporate sponsorships and financial support from individual donors. Ticket sales were slightly lower than 2013-2014, which was a record high season.

“Last year was an important year for the OSO as we worked to improve the operational foundations and begin efforts to solidify sponsorships and donations,” said Robert Barr, executive director.

“I am happy with the progress we’ve made over the past 12 months and extend a sincere thank you to our corporate partners, individual donors and ticket buyers who all helped make this past year a success.”

OSO also reported on the repertoire and guest artists performing with the orchestra.

“Our 2014/15 season had many artistic highlights with an exceptional roster of guest artists and our own fabulous musicians,” said Rosemary Thomson, music director.
