At our May 12th concert, we were honoured to launch the Jacquie Ackerman Memorial Commission Fund, dedicated to the commissioning of new Canadian choral compositions.
Members of the Saskatoon Chamber Singers and the Saskatoon arts community mourned the untimely passing of our friend Jacquie Ackerman in October 2018. Jacquie was a member of the Saskatoon Chamber Singers for over 20 years. The Jacquie Ackerman Memorial Commission Fund will be a permanent legacy to Jacquie’s contributions to our choir, her leadership in the arts community, and love of music. It particularly recognizes Jacquie's passion for performing and conducting Canadian music.
Inspired by the response so far, our goal is to secure funding for commissions many years into the future, ideally through the establishment of a permanent endowment fund. We are seeking to raise $15,000 to allow the commissioning of new works on a regular basis. The Fund will be held by the Saskatoon Community Foundation.
We invite you to join us in creating this lasting tribute to Jacquie.
