On Friday, May 2, Saskatchewan’s Own Andino Suns (sponsored by PotashCorp) will bring their high-spirited music to Prince Albert.  This group was a hit at Ness Creek and Juno Fest in 2013. Their sound is a fusion of the music of the Andean Region of South America and the rock and folk music of the Canadian prairies.

On May 4, the Watsonairs present their Annual Spring Concert at the Olive and John Diefenbaker Theatre. The Watsonairs have a long and distinguished history in Prince Albert having been established by Mrs. Kathleen Watson in 1956. 

Each year they have two major events, the Christmas Carol Festival in December and the spring concert. They also perform at hospitals and nursing homes during the Christmas season. Over the years, the Watsonairs have raised money and provided many community buildings with pianos.  The beautiful concert grand piano at the E.A. Rawlinson Centre was donated by the Watsonairs.

This year the theme of their concert is Reflection.  The Watsonairs will be joined by special guests including some of the scholarship winners from the Prince Albert Kiwanis Music Festival.   Please note, the Watsonairs concert will be at 2 PM.  Tickets are available from Watsonairs members, from Val’s Floral Boutique and at the door.
