One last musical adventure to end our season!

After a year of musical travel, we find ourselves in need of sometime to slow down and literally smell the roses. We’re taking a trip to the country with two iconic musical idyllic adventures.

Violinist Veronique Mathieu returns to the SSO to perform Ralph Vaughan Williams’ hauntingly beautiful Lark Ascending – a performance that will surely be a highlight of our 90th season.

Conductor Maria Fuller leads the SSO through Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. This masterwork captures the composer’s love of a walk through the country, filled with a shepherd’s pipe, birds singing, streams flowing, and an epic thunderstorm!

Stroll through the trees, explore the wide open prairie, and clear your mind with this uplifting performance of two of the greatest pieces ever written.

 

 

 

The SSO is reimagining the possibilities for what concerts we can bring to the stage for our 90th season and still address the risks and protocols required to ensure safety for musicians and audiences during the pandemic.

We’re trying something completely different this year – we’re taking a musical trip around the world, so each and every concert is a musical trip. To ensure that we can keep adapting to the Saskatchewan Public Health requirements, we’re planning trips a month or two at a time. So we’ll be constantly revealing concerts that are coming up!

Each concert will be available for live stream and video on demand through our new Digital Concert Stream.

While we’re on our musical trips there’ll be all sorts of special travel perks and virtual experiences through our InTune Blog!
