  • We are in the middle of a veryexciting season.It has been so rewarding to see so manypeople enjoying music in Saskatoon thefirst half of the season proved that theorchestra is a vital part of what makes it agreat place to live!

    Im proud to say that over the course of thelast 12 months, weve made majorachievements in terms of how theorganization operates. Were on budget,growing our revenue, on target for asurplus, and making some really greatmusic.

    We wouldnt be experiencing thisremarkable a year if it werent for theincredible support from our audience. Aswe turn our focus to the future, I hopeyoull join us as we embark on the nextphase of our success.

    I want to invite each of you to be a part ofour Share in the Future campaign theconcept is simple: find 2000 donors to give$100 to the SSO before May 31. In additionto your receipt, youll join us this fall for agala concert with a very special surpriseguestthe only way to get in is to be oneof the 2000. We want a chance to musicallysay thank you.

    Thanks to the great generosity of the Frankand Ellen Remai Foundation, the moneyraised from the Share in the Futurecampaign will be matched all 2000 giftsmatched, completely retiring the deficitand allowing the SSO to focus on thefuture.

    On March 4, we will announce our 16thmusic director; Saskatoons newestmusician will step on to the podium thisfall and help the SSO define a newsoundtrack for the city. It is an exhilaratingtime to make music.

    I hope you will join us in preparing for thefuture. Its clear you love music and a gift toShare in the Future will ensure thatSaskatoons oldest arts organization staysaround for a long time.

  • SSO Shoots and ScoresTAKING THE ORCHESTRA TO CENTRE ICE!Did you read The Hockey Sweater as a kid?Did you read it to your kids or grandkids?Remember the movie version that was onCBC? Well, now it comes to your orchestra.

    In the 30th anniversary year of RochCarrier, the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestrais proud to partner with the SaskatoonBlades and SaskTel Centre in an event thatcombines sport, music, childhoodmemories and new ones about to bemade.

    A few years ago, the National Arts CentreOrchestra commissioned a composer toput the famous childrens book that followsa hockey-loving boy through thedisappointment of getting the gift of thewrong jersey to music.

    Imagine the SSO at centre ice stand forthe anthem, throw the iconic images ontothe score clock, and live out Canadasgreatest hockey tale. The story comes tolife with Mayor Don Atchison (a formerBlade himself!) as our narratorand when

    its all done, the kids will hit the lockerroom, play mini-sticks on the concourse,and take to the ice to skate with the Blades.

    This is one of the most unique eventsweve ever done, said Steve Hogle,president of the Saskatoon Blades Hockeyteam. When the opportunity came alongto partner sports with music in such a greatway, we just had to make this one of themost unique things you can take your kidsto.

    The SSO will be the first orchestra to performthis concert in a rinkand definitely thefirst to do it on ice.

    In a season where the SSO is finding outwhat it means to be an orchestra on theprairies, it goes without saying thatsomehow there needed to be a rinkinvolved; I think this is one of the best kidsconcerts in Canada this year. Nothing elselike it, said Mark Turner, SSO.

    The game takes place on March 15 atSaskTel Centre dont miss the puck drop!
