FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 18, 2021
REGINA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA DANCES IN TO THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH ADIZOKAN ON NOVEMBER 27
REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN: The Regina Symphony Orchestra (RSO) is hitting the dance floor with a program inspired by movement, culture and storytelling through dance. The 2021-2022 Classics Series continues on November 27th at 7:30 in the Capital Auto Theatre at the Conexus Arts Centre.
The program will feature the dynamic performance of Adizokan, presented in partnership with contemporary, Indigenous-performance group, Red Sky Performance. Composed by Eliot Briton, Adizokan is a mix of video, electro-acoustic recordings and orchestra music featuring local dancers and throat-boxer Nelson Tagoona. RSO Music Director Gordon Gerrard will be conducting the concert and will be leading a pre-show conversation with Sandra Laronde, director of Red Sky Performance at 6:45 pm in the Theatre Lobby.
The RSO will continue to explore the world of dance with the fiery Three Dances Suite by Manuel de Falla, choreographed for a ballet set in Spain and influenced by Spanish folk dance more than classical ballet. In a change of pace, the emotional Valse Triste or “Sad Waltz” from Jean Sibelius tells the story of mother’s last dance while her son sleeps at her bedside. The concert will wrap up with energetic Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances – a nostalgic and spirited journey through gloom to happiness.
The concert is presented by MLT Aikins, and is the second concert of this season’s Classics Series – a four concert series held at Conexus Arts Centre featuring familiar works from the past and inspiring contemporary music.
Single tickets for the concert start at $25 with a $15 option for people under 30. Season subscriptions are available now for all series and specials performances. Tickets can be purchased online at www. reginasymphony.com, through the RSO Box Office by calling 306-586-9555 or the Conexus Arts Centre Box Office at 306-525-9999.
