The SBA is pleased to announce that our second annual Band in the Park program was a great success!
Situated in River landing Saskatoon, this was an amazing, yet hot, evening of fan favourite music that everyone could hear and enjoy! This incredible band was directed by Stacy Mortenson-Spokes for the second year in a row!
Echo Valley Provincial Park just recieved a brand new pavilion, so of course we had to have musicians try it out! Featured here is the Lumsden Community Band, active since 1990, with their conductor Miranda Hulshof.
Situated in Kinsmen Park, we had musicians of all ages come for a fun practice for park-goers to enjoy! This band was directed by the incredible Mark Preece.
The Lumsden Community Band got the opportunity to travel to a few Provincial Parks and play their pieces. Here they are featured in Rowans Ravine with their Christmas in July concert.
Situated in Wakamow Park in the Ampitheater, we had many come to play and to listen this hot, yet cloudy evening. This fantastic group of musicians was directed by Daryl Mckinnon from the Moose Jaw Adult Concert Band!
Regina happily hosted 2 Band in the Parks this year! The second one in August was held in lovely Rochdale Park and directed by Mark Preece once again. The evening was perfect and many passers by enjoyed the music - almost as much as the musicians.
The SBA is pleased to announce a partnership with the National Arts Centre (NAC) and its Music Alive program! The NAC's Music Alive program has provided support to rural and remote band programs in Saskatchewan for a number of years.
Both the SBA and the NAC look forward to this partnership helping to expand the reach and support provided to band directors and developing band musicians. The partnership helps support SBA's summer initiatives such as Band in the Park and our online Master Classes and Instrument Repair sessions.
Stay tuned for ongoing updates and new initiatives made possible with this fantastic partnership.
