Saskatoon Symphony Chamber Ensemble

The SSO’s Chamber Ensemble digs into music you need to hear.

The SSO’s String Quartet will give a performance of Aftab Darvishi’s hauntingly beautiful Daughters of Sol – a work that came to life through the Kronos Quartet’s 50 for the Future. The Quartet will also explore Warmth by Saskatchewan composer Kirsten Ewart, while the wind quintet, Mistral 5, take on The Light Stays the Same by Reena Esmail.

This concert feature work is by Canadian Carmen Braden.  Braden worked with the SSO’s Kitocikewin Project in 2018, and made a big impact!  We’re presenting her stunning and sweet Songs of the Invisible Summer Stars.

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!
