RSO Kicks Off Summer Reading with Regina Public Library

On June 7, the RSO spent a lovely evening with our friends at Regina Public Library starting the summer reading season.  This was a fun event that mixed music history, live music performance and book reviews.  The team at RPL made a list of books and the RSO Chamber Players performed selections to go along with the book themes.  Look for announcement of our 23/24 Free Library Concert Series soon!
