For a number of years now, this annual kick-off to the upcoming Regina Symphony Orchestra season has been held in the space south of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Wascana Centre. This year, though, the RSO is shaking things up and holding the concert at the Motherwell Homestead.
The Motherwell Homestead is a national historic site located about an hour northwest of Regina near Abernathy. Another change this year is that’s there’s no musical acts preceding the RSO concert. Instead, there will be an opportunity for families to participate in a variety of farm-related activities that recall the experience of early settlers to Saskatchewan.
Symphony Under the Sky is being held on Saturday Aug. 29. The family activities will run from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and the concert will follow from 2-4 p.m. As well this year, there’s an admission charge which grants you access to the Motherwell Homestead. You can find out more on the RSO website.
