An evening of culture

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

I’m no culture vulture.  Given my druthers, I’d generally rather listen to John Prine than some symphony orchestra performing the 4th movement of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto.

However last night’s concert was excellent.  I probably wouldn’t have gone if Fiona hadn’t been singing in the massed choir.  The concert included the Saskatoon Youth Orchestra, the Saskatoon Strings, the Prince Albert Strings Orchestra (including Linea and Joanne from our church), and a Prince Albert Massed Choir (including Fiona with the École Vickers School choir).

Congratulations to the organizers who worked hard to pull this event together, and to all the musicians who practiced hard to make it sound great.
