General Information

This 2019-20 season will mark the 43nd season of the SSYO, a testament to the talent of these young musicians. 2019 is also the 31st year under the superb leadership of Artistic Director and Conductor, Alan Denike. Under Alan's leadership, the SSYO has attained a measure of maturity and musical excellence that is the envy of many communities.

As an indication of this high standard, the Orchestra has been again invited to perform with the Regina Symphony Orchestra in March 2020.

The SSYO has also been invited to participate in the Youth Orchestra Symposium at The Banff Centre, November 7-10, 2019 with the Calgary and Edmonton youth orchestras, which is always very fun as well as challenging.

The Final Concert in June 2020 will be a very exciting conclusion to the year, as it will feature the winner of the SSYO's 11th concerto competition. This final performance is preceded by two additional performances: the Annual SSYO Christmas event on December 15th, 2019 and our Spring Fete concert March 21, 2020, with a special guest conductor.
