Red Deer Symphony Orchestra is gearing up for another exemplary season starting with Autumn Cruise on Sept. 24 on the Arts Centre’s mainstage.

Performance time is 8 p.m.

Autumn Cruise marks the beginning of the RDSO’s main series, which runs alongside its scaled-down, more intimate Chamber Series.

The first performance in the Chamber Series, Two Plus Three, is slated for Nov. 20 in the Arts Centre’s Studio A. Performance time is 3 p.m.

But back to the Main Series, which continues Nov. 5 with Hungarian Rhapsody with guest pianist Sandor Falvai and finishes up the year with Yuletide Songs featuring local choir Soliloquy on Dec. 10.

The New Year gets off to a lovely, romantic start with French Kiss with guest Paul Grindlay (bass baritone) on Jan. 21.

Triple Fanfare, to be performed at Gaetz United Church on Feb. 18, will feature trumpet players Robin Doyon, Richard Scholz and Adam Zinatelli.

Spring Awakening with guest oboist Lidia Khaner is set for April 28 and rounds out the season.

Meanwhile, the Chamber Series continues Feb. 12 with Nocturne at the First Christian Reformed Church. American Quartet wraps up the Chamber Series season on May 6 back in the Arts Centre’s Studio A.

Tickets for the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra will now be available through the Black Knight Ticket Centre by calling 403-755-6626 or 1-800-661-8793 or online at www.bkticketcentre.ca.
