The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra presents a variety of symphonic delights to foster appreciation for classical music and enrich the community with artistic experiences. The symphony’s Masters Series, held at TCU Place in the Sid Buckwold Theatre, enthralls audiences with modern renditions of composed classics and musical replications of sitcom laugh tracks. Maestro Victor Sawa dons a sweatband to conduct Ridout's upbeat Fall Fair Overture, and "Feeling SSO Fine" illuminates the talents of Saskatoon-born pianist Helen Kashap, who performs with the orchestra in the first piano concerto ever recorded. Afterward, Sawa conducts the remainder of the production, which includes Brahms's Symphony no. 2 in D Major. During "Classics for Skeptics," Sawa returns to the stage to transform classical music cynics and dog whistle players into devout believers with full symphony arrangements of timeless tunes such as The Bartered Bride and Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet.
