Saskatchewan Music Festival Association
Established in 1908 as a non-profit charitable organization, the Saskatchewan
Music Festival Association holds a competitive music festival for accomplished
musicians throughout our province. This provincial music festival brings together
the winners from 49 local festivals, where they vie to be named the best of the best
amongst their peers. Every year, roughly 20,000 young musicians compete at the local
level in a range of categories, including: voice, piano, string, guitar, bass,
percussion, woodwind, choral, band and speech performance. Of those participants,
roughly 300 earn the opportunity to compete at the provincial level.
The organization also provides nearly $200,000 in scholarships every year. And to make
all of these events run smoothly, roughly 3,000 volunteers donate over 40,000 hours of
service, much to the appreciation of well over 40,000 audience members.
SaskEnergy is proud to be an on-going major sponsor of the Saskatchewan Music Festival
