Arts Council off to a great start

The Swift Current Arts Council started the 2019-20 Stars for Saskatchewan season with the big sound of Calgary's Prime Time Big Band, Oct. 5.

The band has been entertaining audiences since 1994 and some of Calgary's top professional musicians are members of the group. The Swift Current Arts Council has arranged 10 performances by a variety of artists from different musical genres for the new season.

The next concert in the new season promises to be a memorable evening, when the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Council's 50th anniversary concert tour comes to Swift Current, Nov. 1. It will feature a multi-artist concert by three acclaimed Saskatchewan artists, with Jeffery Straker in concert with Annette Campagne and Jack Semple. All concerts take place at the Living Sky Casino event centre. For more information about upcoming concerts, visit the Swift Current Arts Council's website at
