An epic musical adventure of discovery that you must experience live.
Maestra Judith Yan leads your orchestra in our new commission by composer Christos Hatzis in honour of our flute emeritus, Randi Nelson. This world premiere features our very own Principal Flute Allison Miller showcasing her exceptional artistry in this new work by the world renowned Hatzis.
Saskatoon’s own Ryan Davis returns home to make his SSO debut with his very favourite piece of music, Cecil Forsyth’s Viola Concerto. Never heard of it? Trust us you’re going to wonder why you’ve been missing out!
The real adventure begins when we dive into the cinematic soundscape of Ruth Gipp’s 2nd Symphony. Gipps’ captures lightening in a bottle with this one movement work that acts an affair with your imagination.
We’re certain that no one in the room will have heard this music performed before…forget what you know and jump in with both feet.
