The student, Heffley Creek resident Eilidh Nicole, 14, performed in her first concert as a violinist with the Kamloops Brandenburg Orchestra when she was just 12 and began playing music at age three. She studies under the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster Cvetozar Vutev and also plays bassoon.

Nicole will accompany the show’s principal ballerina on stage for a performance on Sunday, Nov. 11, at 5 p.m. at the Sagebrush Theatre, 821 Munro St.

The Great Russian Nutcracker will also play earlier in the day at 1 p.m. Tickets for both shows are available at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, or online at kamloopslive.ca.
