It has been a fun season six! Our season started in July, and we’ve had a concert in October as well. Currently, we’re looking forward to our next concert, which will be happening on February the 5th. See our Upcoming Events page for more information!
Our April concert was a lot of fun. At this concert, we gave out the Saskatoon Registered Music Teacher’s student scholarship to Alex Tosh. His composition was performed at our April 10th concert. It was a lot of fun to hear his piece performed!
Currently, we’re planning our next concert. If you’re interested in performing, let us know! We love to have new performers. New volunteers are also welcome. There are lots of ways to help us keep our concerts running – poster hanging and baking are two ways. If you’re interested, please let us know.
We’re looking forward to more concerts featuring excellent local musicians. Please come check us out!
Now that we have a blog, I thought this would be a good place to review the projects we’ve been working in in past seasons.
Last year, we hosted four Classical Variety Night concerts. We enjoyed getting to work with a lot of musicians and musical ensembles, and our guests included new performers, returning musicians, small groups, and a few larger ones. It was wonderful to hear such a wide range of musical choices at each concert.
We also started a new project last year. We decided to commission a piece of music from a local composer, and this composition was featured at our February concert. We commissioned the piece Dream Sequence by Janet Gieck. We really enjoyed working with a local composer on this project, and are hoping that we’ll be able to do this again in the near future.
If you missed our concerts last season, we’ve more events planned for you to kick off our fifth season. Come check us out, and help support musicians and composers in your community!
