’ÄúThese concerts are not only full of great music but also a lot of fun. We hope that the audience gets into the glamour of the evening by dressing the part, strutting on the red carpet and smiling for the cameras as they head into the Royal Theatre for an exciting live performance of award-winning music’Äů states Bethany Wilson, Director of Marketing and Development.

Maestro Victor Sawa, Music Director of the Regina Symphony Orchestra, is known for his impressive reputation, engaging audience interaction and passion for bringing new faces to classical and pops performances.  Sawa has made several guest appearances all over the world and won countless awards, including the Queen's Jubilee Medal and a Grammy.
