Events in Saskatoon: April 7 to 9, 2017

 

I. Family & Kids Activities

1. Baobab

 
In this story inspired by West African legends, an ancient baobab tree stands tall amidst a persistent drought. One day the tree brings forth an egg and from the egg is born a little boy. The villagers discover that he is the only one who can free the source of water. A beautiful show in which African percussions turn into animals while masks and puppets become genies and witches!!

We present three famous quartets by Haydn, Mozart and Tchaikovsky.

Mozart’s brilliant Quartet in D minor, K.421 is operatic in nature – complete with scenery, characters, ironic asides, laughs, hiccups, and sighs. Tchaikovsky’s first quartet is the first noteworthy Russian chamber music, it contains one of classical music’s greatest hits – the Andante, and according to Tchaikovsky’s own diary it moved Tolstoy to tears.
