OSAC would not exist without the hundreds of volunteers who give tirelessly of their time and more to ensure the Arts can happen in their communities. Since 1994 OSAC has encouraged Arts Councils to nominate local volunteers who have made a difference in their community. In that time over 80 of these valuable volunteers have been recognized by OSAC and their Arts Councils.

If you know of someone in your community that is worthy of this recognition please apply. Volunteer Form

The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2023. If you have any questions please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the office.

Paul George and Margaret Showcase 2010 004OSAC was saddened to hear of the recent passing of George Zukerman.

George played an important part in the early days of OSAC, as his roster of artists that were part of Overture Concerts, toured through our network of volunteer community presenters. As the years passed, and the business changed, George remained active in bringing world-class artists to Saskatchewan through OSAC. From Michael Kim to The Little Eagles of Siberia, many artists visited a number of Saskatchewan communities throughout the years' thanks to his vision and persuasive ways.

George was a performer, encouraging many young bassoon players throughout the years, and in recent years, he lent his name and expertise to European river cruises featuring live music. George also felt all parts of Canada should be exposed to quality live music experiences, and organized tours, including his own, to Canada’s far North, including Northern Saskatchewan.

His legacy will be the audiences everywhere, including Saskatchewan, that were developed through learned appreciation and exposure to live performances of the artistic disciplines of classical music, dance, and theatre.

He packed a lot into his 95 Years, including going to the North Pole, and traveling throughout the world. Rest Well, George !!

Future of Live

Are you concerned about the future of performing arts funding?

In 2019, after sustained advocacy efforts by the performing arts community, the federal government granted temporary funding increases to the Canada Arts Presentation Fund and the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage program. These supplementary funds are currently set to end in March 2024.

Visit the CAPACOA Campaign page to learn what you can do about it. #FutureOfLive
Skip Taylor (Performing Arts Coordinator) and Marianne Woods (School Tours Coordinator) of OSAC took part in a webinar hosted by On Cue Performance Hub - thank you On Cue!

This session focused on how OSAC can help you tour your production across Saskatchewan on the school and arts organization circuit. They discuss the application, jury process, showcase, booking period and finally the tour! Learn best practices in each of these steps from the pitch to the performance.
