Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra presents

La Dolce Vita!

For this romantic Pops concert the orchestra will take you on a musical adventure to one of the most romantic destinations in the world.

Italy is full of exceptional food, incredible wine, picturesque views around every corner…and some of the best romantic music ever written. This concert features two Saskatoon rising super stars joining the SSO to bring you love songs like O Sole Mio, Con Te Partiro (Time to Say Goodbye), O Mio Babbino Caro, and more!

Leslie Dala makes his SSO podium debut, brings his experience and love of Italian music to this performance. You’ll hear love themes from Puccini, the Godfather, and even dip your toes into the waters of Cinema Paradiso.

The evening takes you on an adventure through from Naples to Rome and across the Italian countryside. You’ll be falling in love with Italy and this passionate music just in time for Valentines!
