The Regina Symphony Orchestra believes that the experience of live orchestral music has a meaningful impact for our youth and our community. The Education and Outreach programs deliver innovative initiatives that educate, inform and enhance lives in Regina and Southern Saskatchewan.
Link Up is an integrated music experience for Grades 3-6 students in Regina and southern Saskatchewan where students have the opportunity to experience hands-on learning in their music classes.
Strings for Change
This program provides the opportunity for students at Arcola Community School to take weekly group violin lessons with RSO musicians. The students learn a variety of repertoire, perform throughout the year, and develop a love for music. The students and families also receive complimentary tickets to attend RSO concerts.
Share the Music
This program provides RSO concert tickets to children, families and other adults who otherwise do not have financial resources to attend. More than 500 tickets are provided to partnering organizations each year.
Free Library Series
The RSO presents six free concerts featuring RSO ensembles. Each performance features different musicians and arrangements – you’ll never hear the same piece twice. All performances are held at the Regina Public Library, Central Library Mezzanine from 2:00 pm–3:00 pm, unless otherwise stated.
