For a month, savor the season and immerse yourself in live music, theater and local culinary delights
For the first time, five community arts organizations came together to promote and celebrate Sault Ste. the vibrant arts, culture and heritage sector of Mary.
The Algoma Fall Festival, the Algoma Conservatory of Music, the West End Theater Project, the Algoma Repertory Theater and the Sault Symphony Orchestra have teamed up to present Savor the season, a month-long arts and food festival featuring shows and seasonal menus across the city.
Savor the season kicked off on October 15th.
âSavor the Season really highlights how the Sault is unfolding in the arts and culture,â said Sara McCleary, Director of Advancement for the Sault Symphony Orchestra. âWe only have a few months left to be able to host live events again and there is already so much going on. Getting all of these events promoted together will really help build excitement in the community. “
The Sault Symphony Orchestra offers two concerts as part of Savor the Season.
The first is a free virtual concert, Fall Colors, on October 16 at 7 p.m. âFall Colors will feature two large ensembles of orchestral members playing a selection of classical pieces,â added McCleary. âNext, we make our long-awaited return to live performances on the evening of October 22 in partnership with the Sault Museum for an intimate string show with refreshments provided by Broers Jansen.â
The fall colors will be presented on Facebook. Tickets for the Sault Symphony Orchestra at the Museum can be purchased at the Sault Museum.
Along with these concerts, Savor the Season is featured by the Celtic celebration of the Algoma Fall Festival – a lively evening of performances by The Wild Turkeys, The Fretless and The Slocan Ramblers; performances at the breathtaking new venue of the Algoma Conservatory of Music, LE LOFT; and the return of the hugely popular Evil Dead the Musical which was relaunched for a second round.
The inaugural year of the festival will also feature All Together Now, presented by The Westend Theater Project. This global music event celebrates local theater and is scheduled to take place on the weekend of November 12.
âWe present a music review of various musicals, featuring songs that have never been performed on our stage locally,â said Lucas Beaver, artistic director of the West End Theater Project. âWe also showcase the talents of over 50 local artists, including solos, duets, small groups to large production numbers.
The other cool thing about this project is that almost every show will be different, we alternate the performers for some of the solos. We really wanted to introduce as many people as possible. “
The West End Theater Project is one of thousands of theater organizations in over 35 countries presenting All Together Now over the weekend of November 12th. Tickets can be purchased at the West End Theater Project’s website.
To add a local flavor to these shows, Giovanni’s, Casey’s and The View are offering seasonal, multi-course dining options at a prix fixe starting at $ 29 for the duration of the festival. Menu items include candied pork, fall harvest soup, butternut squash ravioli and more. Full menu details can be found here.
