Programme


General Information

This season will mark the 41st season of the SSYO, a testament to the talent of these young musicians. 2017 is also the 29th 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 invited to perform with the Regina Symphony Orchestra on Saturday May 12th, 2018.

The SSYO has also been invited to participate in the Youth Orchestra Symposium at The Banff Centre, November 9th to 12th, 2017 with the Calgary and Edmonton youth orchestras, which is always very fun as well as challenging.

The Final Concert in June 2018 will be a very exciting conclusion to the year, as it will feature the winner of the SSYO's 9th concerto competition. This final performance is preceded by two additional performances: the Annual SSYO Christmas Brunch & Concert on December 10th, 2017 and our Spring Fete concert March 17 , 2018, with a special guest conductor.
