SMEA's 2022/2023 Full Annual Report
In the past fiscal year, our organization achieved significant milestones and celebrated various accomplishments. The highlight was the inaugural Music Education Day, a momentous occasion that brought together enthusiasts and professionals to promote the importance of music education. The return to in-person events, such as the Saskatchewan Music Conference and the Honour Groups, marked a successful transition back to in person events, fostering collaboration and networking within the music community.
Our commitment to inclusivity and cultural diversity was evident through cultural diversity workshops. We extended our reach to northern regions with impactful music camps, while still providing a central music camp in Prince Albert, contributing to the enrichment of musical education in underserved areas.
The Music Educator Video Series showcased expertise and shared valuable insights. Embracing creativity, we launched initiatives like Learn English Through Singing (held virtually), blending education with artistic expression. Furthermore, the expansion of the Saskatchewan Music Outreach Project underscored our dedication to reaching more diverse audiences than ever before.
In summary, the past fiscal year was marked by successful events, inclusive programs, and innovative initiatives, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to advancing music education and community engagement. Be sure to check out our 2022-2023 Annual Report for the full report!
