“Take a trip and never leave the farm” was a lyric in Jim Stafford’s 1974 comedic ode to cannibas called “Wildwood Weed”.
Tonight’s Masterworks Concert by the Regina Symphony Orchestra offers a similar opportunity — to take a trip, that is, without leaving the comfort of your seat at Conexus Arts Centre. And that’s a musical trip, by the way, not the other kind.
