On Nov. 30, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. at Mosaic Place, the Regina Symphony Orchestra will perform a Christmas concert. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
Christmas is coming in a Regina Symphony Orchestra (RSO) concert at Mosaic Place.
“This is the symphony’s first time in Mosaic Place,” said Doug Campbell, director of business development at Mosaic Place. “Anytime you can have a holiday-themed show at that time of the year, customers are going to be in the festive spirit and looking for a great family show to come out to celebrate the holidays with.”
Presented by River Street Productions Inc., the RSO will perform at Mosaic Place on Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m.
“We spoke with one of our promoters in Calgary that has links to our Moscow Ballet performance and they felt they wanted to bring in another Christmas show featuring the Regina Symphony and focus specifically on Christmastime music,” said Campbell.
“The partnership is one of the relationships we’ve developed through the Moscow Ballet and now to the symphony.”
The RSO was founded in 1908 and is Canada’s longest-running symphony over the last 105 years. The RSO, a professional full-scale symphony with 12 highly-skilled Chamber players, performs more than 80 concerts in Regina, southern parts of Saskatchewan and First Nations communities each year.
For the last 17 seasons, Victor Sawa has conducted the symphony and the RSO does every type of music from classical to movies.
After the concert, there is a VIP champagne reception with Sawa with a limited number of seats available. The seats for the reception are included in the ticket price. More information will be on the Mosaic Place website on Friday.
Campbell said the RSO concert announcement marks the fifth straight week Mosaic Place has announced upcoming events.
“The Regina Symphony Orchestra’s show is yet another example of the diversity of events that can be held at Mosaic Place,” he said.
Tickets start at $39.50 plus service fees and applicable taxes. Tickets go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. For tickets, visit www.mosaicplace.ca, call 306-624-2050 or visit the Mosaic Place box office.
