Saskatchewan born, internationally celebrated composer, musician and conductor Maria Fuller joins the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra as guest conductor on a musical trip to the Golden City. Prague is the next destination on the orchestra’s tour of the world. The musical legacy of this city includes all-star composers like Mozart, who’s Don Giovanni premiered in Prague and Devorak who’s one of the regions most celebrated sons. This music is romantic and passionate and you can have this live streamed performance in your home for $15.
It’s a chance to celebrate the very feature that Saskatoon was built around, the South Saskatchewan River. The team at Nutrien Wonderhub is leading half-hour adventures along the beautiful Meewasin Valley Trail. The group walks head out from the Wonderhub at 2:00p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Along the way, you’ll learn about the river, nature and the wildlife that surrounds you and at the end of the walk, you’ll get a craft kit to take home and create a little something special for your own backyard. Fresh air and a gorgeous view should make for a pretty good weekend. This event runs until the end of March and it’s free.

The folks at Wide Open Children’s Theatre know how to engage kids and they are doing that virtually with a new series of videos including Labrastories with Jenna. Created by local actor Jenna Berenbaum, these short videos are all about science and they approach them with a ton of fun. Bugs, dinosaurs, outerspace; there’s no topic too big for Jenna to take on. There’s jokes, puppetry and crafts in these super interactive videos. You can tune in for free on Wide Open’s Facebook page.
It’s almost impossible not to sing along with children’s performer Sylvia Chave. This fabulous lady in orange engages kids with music and interactive play. Even though she can’t do the same in-person performances we know her for, Sylvia is still hard at it posting new videos every Tuesday. Gather the kids and watch these performances for free from the comfort of your own home.
