Band Summit Success!
Our first Band Summit was a big success! We had a great time in our sessions, learned some new things, and had a lot of fun! We enjoyed a couple fantastic concerts from the Prince Albert Concert Band, the Saskatoon Brass Band and the Queen City Brass Bands. A big thank you goes to Yamaha Canada and St. John's Music for sponsoring our special guest Chase Sanborn. We hope to see you all at our next Band Summit!
Congratulations National Youth Band of Canada!
SBA wishes to extend a big congratulations to the 2018 National Youth Band of Canada directed by Dr. Wendy McCallum, and featuring Yamaha guest soloist Simon Aldrich. SBA would especially like to congratulate the six amazing musicians that represented our province.
