About the Concert

An afternoon of fun and musical discovery with kids as the stars. Learn to conduct and lead the orchestra! Hear a young winner from the Music Festival perform solo with the symphony. Be part of the pandemonium when a musical pantomime inspired by Toy Story is performed to Biber’s ‘Battalia,’ but a mixup occurs and the orchestra plays Justin Bieber instead!  Saskatoon Youth Orchestra musicians perform on toys in the real Toy Symphony. It’s family fun centred on great music, and with your kids in the spotlight.
