About The Artists
The Regina Symphony Orchestra (RSO) is a musical organization that has been in operation for almost 50 years, with roots stretching back to the early 1900s.  Growing from a volunteer group of musical Regina residents, the RSO is now a professional musical ensemble composed of wind, string, brass and percussion instruments, performed by expert musicians. Through live concert events and engaging educational opportunities, the RSO provides musical experiences for people of all ages and levels of musical knowledge. Concerts feature music from a variety of creative periods, cultures, and musical styles – making an RSO orchestra performance a unique experience in Southern Saskatchewan.  RSO performances are a place to gather in celebration of our musicians and of our community.  The RSO concert season runs from September to June, with ticketed concerts featuring the full orchestra ranging from intimate chamber performances to large- scale symphony spectaculars.
