SBA Band Camps are successful because of the care, support and dedication of many individuals, community groups and organizations.
Sask Lotteries, SaskCulture, NAC and many others have helped to make the summer a success for Saskatchewan youth who love band.
Thank you to the wonderful facilities that host our yearly camps. The University of Regina, The University of Saskatchewan, and the Yorkdale Central School in Yorkton. All first rate facilities that allow the camps to run smoothly.
Here is a list of sponsors for summer band camps, we greatly appreciate all of the support!
The Yorkton Band Camp was an amazing stop in our incredible 2023 Band Camp Season! We had incredible participants from all over the province join for a great week of learning and playing with our sensational line up of instructors! Throughout the week, the participants got a chance to participate in full band, small ensemble, sectionals, theory and private lessons!
On Friday, July 21st, the Yorkton Band Camp presented a wonderful Final Concert at the Yorkdale Elementary School. The packed audience was treated to a pre-show performance by the 5-member student “Gig Ensemble” which had performed at 2 Seniors’ Homes earlier in the week.
The Final Concert featured the woodwind ensemble, brass ensemble and the Select Band which performed “Siyahamba” & “Cumberland Gap”. The Bob Mossing Band Camp Awards were presented to :Zoë Napoleoni, Foni Clement, Layton Kuntz, Olabanji Falana, and Evan Weber.
After intermission, the Full Band performed 4 pieces included Conductor Reed Wishnevetski’s favourite “The Water is Wide” which he stated how fondly he remembered playing it from his days being a band student. The Concert finished with the rousing “Rock to the Max, Mr. Sax” for which the audience roused for the standing ovation. All were so delighted with the Band Camp and Final Concert and plan to attend the Yorkton Band Camp next year!
