Meet the Musicians in Your Neighbourhood

On top of missing getting to make music for our audiences, we’re also missing each other!  Which was one of the reasons we launched Meet the Musicians in Your Neighbourhood.

Join us on Facebook Live on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm to catch Maestro Eric Paetkau interviewing musicians from the SSO and our musical friends in our community!

To tune in to these feeds join us at our Facebook Video page.

Each of the video interviews are live – while you watch you’re also able to ask a question and join in the chat.

Don’t have Facebook – don’t worry!  Our videos are all public, so you can still watch them even without being on Faecbook.

If you’re missed getting to watch the live interview, you can watch it anytime for the next month at our Facebook Video page

We’ve started by interviewing the members of the SSO’s Chamber Ensemble, and soon we’ll be featuring other players in the orchestra, local musicians and SSO partners and friends.
