Michael Dawson appointed as new SaskMusic Executive Director

Michael Dawson is the new Executive Director of SaskMusic. Which is great news – many of us know Dawson through his work as Artistic Director of the Culture Exchange and of the Gateway Festival.

He was also in a band from Regina called Library Voices. Maybe you’ve heard of them?

SaskMusic’s previous Executive Director, Derek Bachman, passed away suddenly on December 10, 2014 following a brief illness.

Dawn Woroniuk, SaskMusic President, issued the following statement via a press release:

“We very much miss Derek; his place in our hearts, and his considerable impact on our music scene, will not be forgotten. What we believe he would want most is for SaskMusic to move boldly forward, and for us to uplift one another in the continued development of our industry. We are thrilled to welcome Michael to the team, and look forward to continuing on with our mission!”

Ominocity would like to congratulate Dawson on his appointment, and look forward to working alongside SaskMusic in promoting our homegrown talent.
