Last year marked the first year of the Saskatoon Symphony Chorus – and it was a resounding success!
The chorus performed with the SSO for both the concert and sing-along performances of Handel’s Messiah. After the astounding response we had from the audience to the choir, we immediately planned to expand the chorus’ performances for the 85th season. In the upcoming season, the chorus’ performances will include Handel’s Messiah and Vivaldi’s Gloria – two of the most beloved choral works.
The SSO is excited to have Duff Warkentin return to work with our choir – Duff’s commitment to the text and the music brings out the best in ever choir he works with. The choir will also work with maestro Eric Paetkau who will lead the orchestra in performances.
Last year’s Messiah performance had many people saying it was one of the best performances they’d ever heard of the work – and this year’s performance is sure to exceed that…there might just be some choruses in the work we didn’t sing last year!
