The first annual RUMRUNNER was a successful, sell out event!  Feedback was positive and the trail of #RUMRUNNER2016 remains as evidence of the hilarity and triumph of our teams.  We're bringing RUMRUNNER back to Downtown Red Deer on June 2, 2017 with new riddles and tasks, scoring and prizes.  Plan to join us in an evening of shameless shenanigans this spring.  Registration for teams of 4, 5, and 6 is open as of April 1, 2017.  A copy of the rules and waiver of liability is available here. Don't miss out on what is guaranteed to be a good time in support of a good cause!  Click here to register for RUMRUNNER 2017.

The Red Deer Symphony Orchestra Association is excited to partner with Downtown Sounds @ Gaetz to bring Nine Lessons & Carols to Red Deer  A Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols is the Christmas Eve service held every year at the King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, U.K.  The Festival was introduced in 1918 to bring a more imaginative approach to worship.  It was first broadcast in 1928 and is now broadcast each year to millions of people around the world.

A unique blend of story and song, the program resonated with what the Christmas season is all about.  Featuring all local talent, including Soliloquy and the children’s choir from Annie L. Gaetz, this celebration of the season highlighted the capacity we have within our midst in central Alberta.

Everyone in attendance was invited to sing along during traditional hymns and carols which were interspersed by powerful verse, delivered by engaging orators.  Members and the public felt warmly welcome to enjoy this service hosted at Gaetz Memorial United Church.  

The inaugural Black & White Ball was held at the Sheraton Hotel Event Centre on December 31, 2016.  Plated dinner, dessert buffet, prize raffle, live music, two dance floors and complimentary champagne at midnight were enjoyed by all.    Proceeds from the Black & White Ball will serve to benefit the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra operations and programs into 2017.   "Red Deer's Dick Clark", Greg Shannon, and local Funhouse Dance Band  entertained everyone with their quips, music, and fun-loving attitudes.  Thank you to everyone who joined us in ringing in the New Year!  The support of our event sponsors and attendees are what made this a successful event that has us already looking forward to sending out the invitations for next year.
