If you’re looking for something to do tomorrow (Sunday, March 22), this local classical music organization is presenting a concert by the acclaimed Canadian chamber group Octagon. As the name implies, there’s eight musicians in the group. They include: Martin Beaver, Mark Fewer, violins; Rivka Golani, viola; Rachel Mercer, cello; Joe Phillips, double bass; James Campbell, clarinet; Kathleen McLean, bassoon; Ken MacDonald, french horn.
I’m not sure what compositions will be on the program, but the concert will go at Knox Metropolitan Church in downtown Regina at 4 p.m. Tickets are Adults $50, Students $20, with children 12 and under free when accompanied by an adult. You can find out more information on Octagon on the Cecilian Concert Series website.
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
