We’re very excited to be holding our annual meeting and music education event this year at St. Andrew’s College in Saskatoon, SK, in Saskatchewan Conference of The United Church! Our official programme begins on Saturday, May 6, but since we’re partnering with St. Andrew’s College this year we thought it would be fun to hold our event on convocation weekend, when many people are in the city already for the festivities.
Visit our Eventbrite page to register. $45 registration (Saturday lunch included). Everyone who is interested in church music is welcome – choir directors and singers, organists/pianists and instrumentalists, all levels of ability. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Saskatoon!
We have recommendations for accommodation for out-of-town attendees and parking information for St. Andrew’s College here.
