SaskTel Symphony in Schools Program

The SASKATOON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA is pleased to offer digital delivery of classroom performances and activities! 

Since we can’t come right to your school, we’ve found a new way to bring the music to you! The digital delivery of our educational programming means that is more robust than ever!

Our goal is to educate, inspire, and encourage people of all ages in the enjoyment of music. Students are given the opportunity to experience music in their classroom through a host of options.

This year the SaskTel Symphony in Schools program features the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra performing a new take on Vivaldi’s iconic Four Seasons that explores Saskatchewan’s potential climate change by 2050.  The $45 digital package includes classroom materials, curriculum connectors, lesson plans, and videos of both Vivaldi’s original and the new [Uncertain] Four Seasons!

Our educational programming for schools would not be possible if it weren’t for the support of SaskTel – thanks to their support nearly 20,000 students hear live professional classical music in their school!

The [uncertain] Four Seasons – what does Saskatchewan’s seasons

sound like in the future?

In 2021, the SSO took part in a global orchestral project for Act Now as part of the COP26 Conference in November 2021. 

The [Uncertain] Four Seasons is an algorithmic re-composition of Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’. Developed by composers, musicians, climate and computer scientists using geospatial climate predictions for 2050.

Dip into the music you know and love and experience it changed to reflect our very own Saskatoon climate thirty years from now.

Teachers are able to purchase 3 month access to the SaskTel SSO in Schools package for a discounted rate of $45 – this can be shown to as many classrooms/students as you wish for 3 months.
The package includes access to the video of The [uncertain] Four Seasons, video access for Vivaldi’s original Four Seasons, and a classroom resource package (available in the [uncertain] Four Seasons video page).
