Saskatoon Symphony Chorus, Duff Warkentin Handel’s timeless masterpiece marks its 105th performance in Saskatoon. A tradition older than the SSO, Handel’s Messiah is the musical high point of a busy holiday concert season.The SSO is joined by four exceptional soloists all ready to take on the virtuosic singing of Messiah.  The Saskatoon Symphony Chorus returns for the fifth year. Get your tickets early because with performances like these, it’s no wonder it sells out every year!

If Music Be the Food of Love @ Convocation Hall, U of S Campus

Saskatoon Symphony Chamber Players

“If music be the food of love, play on! Give me excess of it!”

As part of our Mid-Winter Music Festival exploring the musical muse that is Shakespeare, the SSO Chamber Players brings you an afternoon of music inspired by the Bard.

Beethoven was a fervent lover of Shakespeare’s works, and in his String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1, he captures Juliet’s tomb scene in the stunning second movement. Saskatchewan composer Elizabeth Raum wrote incidental music for a production of King Lear, and when the production closed she created a suite of the music for wind quintet, the King Lear Fantasy. These pieces and much more—even a few surprise guests—as we explore the food of love!
