New arts festival set to debut in Regina with theme of Truth and Reconciliation
CBC News, Saskatchewan
Gordon Gerrard, music director for the RSO, says it’s common for orchestras to have genre-themed festivals, but RSO wanted to do something different.
“I’ve always felt that there’s more to what an orchestra can offer than some people realize,” said Gerrard.
“So, we thought we would start a festival every year taking its theme from a different issue of social relevance in our community.”
