Whether you love to play music or just sit and listen to it, the perfect opportunity is coming your way. Each year approximately 55,000 people participate in Saskatchewan’s music festivals. The Yorkton Music Festival is one of these 49 affiliated music festivals in the province and it’s a great opportunity to take in some incredible music. This year the festival runs from March 9 to March 22.
Presented by the Yorkton Music Festival Association, the event brings some added appreciation for the Arts. It is a part of the Saskatchewan Music Festival Association, which has been around since 1908. Their goal is to provide educational and performance opportunities to the young people in the province.
Professional adjudicators provide coaching, workshops, and evaluations of participants. Those participating in the festival have the opportunity to develop and refine their skills leading up to their final performances. All of the hard work culminates in the final performances.
The festival also brings the community together. Volunteers, teachers, parents, donors, supporters and audience members all come together to make the festival a success each year.
This year’s schedule features piano performances from March 9 to 13 at St. Andrews United Church, band performances from March 16 to 18 at Yorkton Regional High School, vocal, music theatre and choral performances from March 19 to 21 at St. Andrews United Church, and the Competition Hi-Lites Concert on March 22 at St. Andrews United Church at 2 pm.
Attend, participate or volunteer. No matter which, you’ll be supporting local youth and the Arts.
