It’s strange to not be able to make music with your friends – and even stranger that we weren’t getting to make music FOR our friends!
While we all stay home to flatten the curve, the SSO wanted to bring you some special programming to enjoy from the comfort of your home. Eric and the musicians have been busy working with the staff to create ways to connect with you during this time!
Meet the Musicians in Your Neighbourhood
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm on at www.facebook.com/saskatoonsymphony
Join Maestro Eric Paetkau every Tuesday and Thursday on Facebook live for a chance to talk to the musicians that make the SSO awesome. Each episode gets chatty and explores how each person came to call Saskatoon home, their musical influences, and so much more!
Classical Now on CFCR
Mondays, 7:00-8:30pm on CFCR www.cfcr.ca
Join our ED Mark Turner each Monday night for Classical Now – dig deeper into your music library and find out more about the behind the scenes stories of composers/performers and their music. Discover music new and old and maybe even learn something on the way!
We are going to be sharing some music with you – some from past performances, and some filmed just for social media. It’s a mix of stuff you’ll know well and stuff you should know better (it slaps, as the kids would say!). We’ll be posting videos on Faecbook, Instagram, and YouTube – so keep your eyes pealed!
with Richard and Stephanie – dates TBD
If you’ve been to one of our After Dark performances, you’ll know what we’re talking about! From the musicians who brought you “Name that Tune on the Bassoon” and that weird thing with the cheese, we’re going to have a few trivia nights led by Richard and Stephanie to test your knowledge of all things pub-trivia mixed in with some music!
Beethoven 250 Festival
May 2nd to 8th
The festival week we had planned may have had to be cancelled, but we’ve got something up our sleeves for the stay-at-home edition. Join us for some learn opportunities, catch some music, get interactive with the SSO! Details announced soon!
Kids Learning Opportunities
Every day at 10am we’re posting a cool activity for your kids to try out – head over to our Facebook and check out the daily activity.
We have a bunch of plans in the works – maybe you’ll learn about the 12 most important symphonies ever, or how to make a double reed! We are adjusting to this new world of having to connect with each other and with all of you in new ways – and its going to be a unique way to make music more during this difficult times!
