Farewell To Victor

After 20 years at the helm of the Regina Symphony Orchestra, maestro Victor Sawa is stepping down. On Saturday May 7 the RSO will join forces with the Regina Philharmonic Chorus, Halcyon Chamber Choir and some guest soloists to present a farewell concert.

The program features two iconic compositions by Beethoven: Symphony No. 1 and Symphony No. 9. You can find out more about the concert, which goes at Conexus Arts Centre on Saturday at 8 p.m., by visiting the RSO website.

To give you a taste of what to expect, here’s video from 2012 of a flash mob performance of the last movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 which is known as Ode To Joy and was inspired by a 1785 poem by Friedrich Schiller
