Brit’s Picks Oct. 7 – 14



St. John’s Cathedral  

It’s a musical glimpse into the future of our world if we do nothing to fight climate change. The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra will present a reimagining of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and it’s part of a worldwide call to action. The score for [UNCERTAIN] Four Seasons was created using an algorithm built by scientists, programmers, musicians and composers to reflect changes in our environment anticipated by 2050. Saskatoon’s performance is based on its geolocation and reflects shortened seasons, wider extremes, tempo changes and the addition of percussion. Vivaldi’s original masterpiece included sonnets for each season and the prose for this performance will be provided by Lindsay ‘Eekwol’ Knight. The live concert will be Saturday and then the recorded version will be broadcast along with 14 other locations including Sao Paulo, Cape Town and Seoul on November 1st to coincide with the opening of the United Nations Climate Change Conference. Tickets to the performance are $30 – $45.
