Celebrate Christmas with the RDSO

The Red Deer Symphony Orchestra’s third concert of the season is set for this Saturday evening on Red Deer College’s Main Stage, featuring the Red Deer Youth and Community Orchestra.

Organizers say the concert will feature a variety of seasonal favourites with a blend between the exotic and familiar. Also featured on the program are selections from Le livre d’orgue by composer Louis-Claude Daquin and Vivaldi’s Concerto in E major RV 270 ‘Il riposo – per il Natale’.

Led by the RDSO Principal Second Violinist Louise Stuppard, the Red Deer Youth and Community Orchestra has been a part of Red Deer’s musical scene for more than 40 years.

The RDYCO provides opportunities for musical and educational experiences for young musicians in Central Alberta which has created a dynamic and social group where music making and having fun are equally important.

Partnering with the Rosedale Valley String Orchestra in the ‘Music for a Mission’ concerts, the RDYCO has been successful in raising funds each spring in support of a variety of international humanitarian projects. Comprised of aspiring young musicians from throughout the region, the RDYCO is committed to the development of youth and to the excellence of musicianship.

This year organizers are asking patrons to donate to or participate in the RDSO Annual Applause Campaign, which runs to Dec. 31st – donations can be made online via www.rdso.ca or in person at the concert.

Come early and enjoy live entertainment in the lobby at 7:20 p.m. with the Mount Royal Flute Choir. Tickets are available through the Black Knight Ticket Centre. Charge by phone 403-755-6626 or 1-800-661-8793 or online at www.bkticketcentre.ca.
