The Regina Symphony Orchestra (RSO) is a full-scale professional orchestra led by the innovative and exciting Music Director, Gordon Gerrard. All of the RSO musicians are members of the American Federation of Musicians. During a 39-week season, the orchestra rehearses and performs for: a pre-season outdoor concert, eight Masterworks concerts, five Pops concerts, three Canada Life kids concerts, six Government House double chamber concerts, and three special concerts including perennial favourite, Handel’s Messiah.
Through their professional performances, the RSO musicians make a valuable contribution to the cultural fabric of southern Saskatchewan. The musicians live and raise their families in Regina and surrounding areas. However, many musicians pursue a variety of other professions while still maintaining their hectic orchestral schedule.
