Eric Paetkau, music director
Stéphane Tétreault, cello

We kick off our 89th season with a night of big bold music.  Opening the evening is a work by Saskatchewan composer Laura Pettigrew, whose music is vivid and colourful and cinematic in scope.

Cellist Stéphane Tétreault made such a huge impression on us last season, that we literally couldn’t wait to have him back.  This time he’ll be playing the richly romantic Dvorak Cello Concerto, which pairs perfectly with Brahms’ final symphony.

We complete our exploration of the Brahms symphonies in this special opening night experience.  Brahms’ 4th is bursting with autumnal colours, and showcases the orchestra and the composer at full strength.

William Rowson, conductor
Carissa Klopoushak, violin
Ryan Cole, trumpet
Saskatoon Youth Orchestra, conductor Richard Carnegie

A celebration of the lasting effect that music has had on the youth of Saskatoon.

Conductor William Rowson returns home to lead the SSO and the Saskatoon Youth Orchestra with some of Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances – a perfect way to start off this exciting concert.

Violinist Carissa Klopoushak returns to the SSO stage to perform Canadian Vivian Fung’s Violin Concerto No. 1.  The piece is an aural exploration of sound and a perfect artistic fit for Carissa!

Trumpeter Ryan Cole makes his SSO debut with a concerto written just for him.  Though he premiered this work with the Victoria Symphony Orchestra (that he now calls home), we can’t wait for Ryan to have this special homecoming.

The evening is capped off by a performance of Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony.
