The SBA and many Saskatchewan Bands have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Pete Meechan on various projects over the years. This summer Pete has been a huge help with our Online Summer Band programs.
Our Performance Program is currently practicing Pete's adapted version of his popular composition Zenith. Pete adapted the piece to support its use in flex-band formats where instrumentation, band size and skill levels may be varied. Our Performance Program participants, with the help of online Sectionals, will be recording the piece at the end of the course. This full band recording of Zenith, along with various other small ensemble recordings, will comprise a virtual concert video that participants will be able to share with family and friends.
A huge thank you to Pete for adapting various band pieces to make them more accessible, something vitally needed at this time, and for supporting SBA's program this summer. We are excited to share a wonderful podcast with The Band Room host Dylan Maddix for those who wish to hear a bit more about what Pete has been up to.

The next Creative Kids application deadline is August 14 for fall activities. Families and service providers should note that while an application may be funded, government health regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic will dictate how activities are offered. This could mean the initial activity needs to be cancelled, postponed, offered online, or adapted to limited in-person participants with physical distance and safety precautions. Service providers and families would be expected to adhere to the Government of Saskatchewan guidelines and should not do anything that feels unsafe.
