Choristers and Family:

SJASD Choirs Committee signed up for a wonderful text reminder to eliminate paper and keep you in the know using your cell phones. We will use “REMIND” as a text reminder to keep you updated on fundraising dates and information on important concert details.

We invite and encourage the whole family to sign up on their phones for “REMIND”.


Remind is a free, safe, and simple messaging tool that helps teachers share important updates and reminders with students & parents. Subscribe by text, email or using the Remind app. All personal information is kept private. Teachers will never see your phone number, nor will you see theirs. Visit to learn more.

Music Celebration 2016

Music Celebration 2015

Monday, February 8, 2016 - Thursday, February 11, 2016

St. James Assiniboia's Music Celebration is a festival of choral music where the format stresses the learning process rather than the presentation of a "polished" performance. After each group has performed, the adjudicator will come to the stage and work with the choir to help find ways in which they can move from where they are now to the next level. 

Our adjudicators for Music Celebration 2016 will be Avonlea Armstrong and Johanna Hildebrand. These choral clinicians are much in demand throughout our province and abroad. Please check with your home school for details as to performance times and dates. 

Welcome everyone to Music Celebration 2016! 

There is no charge for admission to this even
