ABOUT THE SBA
Established in 1983, the Saskatchewan Band Association is a non-profit, charitable organization.
We are open to any individual, group or organization interested in furthering the development of bands in Saskatchewan.
The Association represents community bands, school bands, the Saskatchewan Pipe Band Association, band directors, music educators, parent associations, students, education institutions, community organizations, and other music associations.
Membership in the Saskatchewan Band Association provides a variety of benefits, including a diverse range of programs and services which enhance and support the future of instrumental music in Saskatchewan. Together we present a strong, collective voice, both provincially and nationally, on issues affecting Saskatchewan bands and the Saskatchewan community .

SBA Website Changes in the Works
If you were looking for some information on the SBA website just before the Easter weekend you might have noticed we were having a few challenges. We ran into some significant issues with our regular website and decided it was best to transition over to our new integrated system to ensure SBA members, Band Camp parents and others did not have to wait too long to re-connect. Please visit us regularly as we will be building and adding new portions to our website over time. We thank you in advance for your understanding, support and patience as we re-establish some of the core functionality from our old website and introduce completely new features as well. In fact, we were already working on this site specifically to manage the 2017 Band Camp registrations and we are happy to introduce this new feature in connection with our new website.
68th Annual Moose Jaw Band And Choral Festival
The festival offers a non-competitive environment, with some of the best clinicians in Canada. Each large group is given 50 minutes of performance/clinic time. The festival will run from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday to Wednesday and 8:30 am to 4:00 pm on Thursday, with evening concerts, featuring guest artists, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night.
Proudly supported by the SBA!
