2020-2021 Programme of Events

This 2019-20 season will mark the 43nd season of the SSYO, a testament to the talent of these young musicians. 2019 is also the 31st year under the superb leadership of Artistic Director and Conductor, Alan Denike. Under Alan's leadership, the SSYO has attained a measure of maturity and musical excellence that is the envy of many communities.

As an indication of this high standard, the Orchestra has been again invited to perform with the Regina Symphony Orchestra in March 2021.

The SSYO has also been invited to participate in the Youth Orchestra Symposium with the Calgary and Edmonton youth orchestras, which is always very fun as well as challenging.

The Final Concert in June 2021 will be a very exciting conclusion to the year, as it will feature the winner of the SSYO's 12th concerto competition. This final performance is preceded by two additional performances: the Annual SSYO Christmas event in December 2020 and our Spring Fete concert March 2021, with a special guest conductor.
