SBA Partnership with NAC


The SBA is pleased to announce a partnership with the National Arts Centre (NAC) and its Music Alive program! The NAC's Music Alive program has provided support to rural and remote band programs in Saskatchewan for a number of years. 

Both the SBA and the NAC look forward to this new partnership helping to expand the reach and support provided to band directors and developing band musicians. More highlights of the partnership will emerge over the next few months but the partnership has kicked off with the NAC's support of SBA's summer initiatives such as Band in the Park and our Online Summer Programs.

Stay tuned for ongoing updates and new initiatives made possible with this fantastic partnership.

National Arts Centre Music Alive Program

The National Arts Centre, through its Music Alive Program, would like to invite you to participate in its Band Intensive Online Professional Development sessions.

Since 2006, the NAC Music Alive Program has inspired and encouraged active participation in the arts to foster creativity, personal growth, and healthy communities, particularly in rural and remote regions of Canada. The NAC Music Alive Program brings Teaching Artists to schools in rural communities at little or no cost. With the advent of online learning, NAC has been at the forefront of online Arts presentations. The MAP Band Intensive is in its fourth year. Previously, MAP teaching artists would offer clinics and perform with Band students in rural schools. This year, we are offering Professional Development sessions for Rural Saskatchewan Band Teachers.

Please see and use the attached invitation letter and application form as needed.
