Red Deer Symphony Orchestra

The RDSO was founded in 1987 as a non-profit organization and continues to be the only professional organization in central Alberta providing live symphonic music to the community. The mission of the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra (RDSO) is to provide central Alberta with quality symphonic music that is nationally recognized. We currently provide 6 Main Series concerts and 3 Chamber Series concerts each season. Our Education and Outreach Programs include Choir Kids (18 schools participate), Symphonic Show N’ Tell (the RDSO string quartet travels to 15 schools), the Woodwind Quintet Program (the RDSO woodwind quintet travels to 8 junior and senior high schools), the Dress Rehearsal Program (providing students with a study guide, and opportunity to observe the orchestra at work), and One-Hour Community concerts in Senior’s homes (2-3 per year).
