RSO Free Concert Series
The RSO Free Concert Series presents six FREE concerts at the Regina Public Library Central Branch for this 2012-13 season.
These concerts feature RSO musicians as soloists and ensemble members.
This series of free concerts has been a huge success last season, with well over 1000 people attending. Set in a non-traditional performance space, the RSO Free Concert Series developed its own audience, as well as delighted visitors to the library who may have come just to find a book, but also discovered live classical music.
