Curated Concerts – For Piano Lovers

Wanting to go to a concert but not sure which one is for you?

This year the SSO is curating it concerts to give you some idea which concerts you’ll love best.

Do you love a piano?
Maybe you have your Gr 8, or you always wished you’d played it, or maybe you just absolutely love the romance and virtuosity of a concert pianist…

We have a big line up of pianists this season…after all, being Season 88 we couldn’t ignore the 88 keys….
