The Hudson Bay Allied Arts Council sponsors Stars for Saskatchewan and Concerts for Kids concert series which bring professional performing artists to the community. The concert series have featured such diverse performances as Globe and Persephone Theaters, Spanish guitarists, pianists, musical comedy groups, wind trios, string quartets and popular performers such as Gary Fjellgaard, Sylvia Tyson, Murray McLaughlin, Valdy and Shirley Eikhard. The children in the community have been entertained by the lively Koncerts for Kids series highlighted by captivating performances by Victoria’s Kaleidoscope Story Theater, Halifax’s Jest in Time, puppet shows, Kim and Jerry Brodey, Eric Nagler and the Musula concert for kids.
The Allied Arts Council also participates in the organization of Saskatchewan Arts Council’s Art on the Move which tours works by Saskatchewan artists and the permanent collections of such agencies as Saskatchewan Sport and the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation. These art displays have been particularly valuable to Hudson Bay schools which have toured hundreds of children through the exhibits.
The Hudson Bay Arts Council attempts to bring a variety of arts to our community. Several times a year they bring an art or “visual art” show to Hudson Bay. They also host three or four concerts of live performers each year. They try to bring a variety of both art and live performers so that people are introduced to new ideas and music, as well as the things they love, close to home. They want all residents of Hudson Bay and area to enjoy “the arts” in an affordable fashion and so try very hard to keep their ticket prices as reasonable as possible.
Tickets can be bought for each individual show, and they sell “season tickets” in late summer/early fall. Season tickets give you a cheaper price to each of the live artist performances.
Funds are raised through ticket sales and a yearly raffle, as well they are dependent on grants and donations.
The Allied Arts Council would like to thank all of the volunteers who sit at the art shows, donate lunch for the performing arts presentations, help set up and take down and a myriad of other tasks.
