The ensemble Octagon performs at UBC Okanagan’s Minds and Music event today in the University Centre Ballroom.

The afternoon will include excerpts from Schubert’s Octet Opus 16 and Beethoven’s Septet Opus 20.

Minds and Music is organized by Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences associate professor of philosophy Manuela Ungureanu. She envisions students, faculty, staff, and the wider Okanagan community together experiencing the joy of music-making and learning about its cultural and historical ties.

The Octagon concert is a free event and is supported by Chamber Music Kelowna and the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences.

It runs from 12:30 to 1:50 p.m.
