A magical night of curiosities in the city of Venice.
The Carnival of Venice is a century old festival that gives an already fantastical city an even greater enchanted atmosphere. The masks, the parties, the stories of Casanova, the gondolas on the canals, and of course the opulent music!
Venice’s music scene exploded in the baroque era. It was marked by virtuosic writing that matched the spectacular art and architecture of the floating city. The royal courts and palaces were filled with some of the most beautiful, challenging, unusual, and breathtaking music of the day.
For this special concert the SSO is joined by four soloists: our very own Principal Flute Allison Miller, Principal Oboe Erin Brophey, soprano Chelsea Mahan, and trumpeter Dean McNeill. They’ll be showcasing the music of Marcello, Tartini, and Vivaldi!
Grab your mask and a bottle of prosecco, and enjoy a gondola ride with the music of the Carnival!Buy a Digital Ticket – Livestream Subscribe to the Digital Concert Stream
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!
