Dream Broker Summer Music Camp

Photos & Video Are Now Available!

They're finally here!  Check out the official Dream Broker Summer Music Camp video here and camp photos here.

The Dream Broker Summer Music Camp was held in Saskatoon on July 3 -- 6, 2012 and in Regina on July 23 -- 26, 2012 and gave students a four-day intensive introduction to a wide range of instruments including: Guitar, Violin, Piano, Percussion, Band, Choir and First Nations' Hand Drumming and Storytelling.  Approximately 45 students came to each camp with little musical experience and left with a greater knowledge and appreciation of music.

The Dream Broker Summer Music Camp is an initiative by the Saskatchewan Choral Federation, Saskatchewan Music Educators Association, Saskatchewan Music Festival and the Saskatchewan Orchestral Association in collaboration with the Dream Broker Program.  It was supported by SaskCulture and PotashCorp with additional funding and in-kind contributions provided by Long & McQuade, First Student Canada, the University of Saskatchewan, the University of Regina, Conexus Credit Union, Access Communications, Signs by BGN, Culligan Water Matters Saskatoon, Water Warehouse Regina.

The Dream Brokers program is a joint venture between SaskSport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association to increase access to sports, culture and recreational activities for children and youth.  The Dream Brokers program was started in 2006 in partnership with the Regina Public and Catholic school boards. Dream Broker coordinators work in schools to ensure children and youth, who traditionally have not had access, get the chance to participate in new opportunities within their community.
