Performance and musical arts
The Amati Quartet performs on seventeenth-century instruments crafted by the Amati family of Cremona, Italy, and collected by the late Stephen Kolbinson, one of Saskatchewan’s first homesteaders. The quartet of instruments (two violins, a viola, and a cello) is unique in Canada, and one of only three sets in the world.
The Greystone Theatre presents four plays a year on the main stage, showcasing the work of student actors and technicians – onstage and behind the scenes. Every season offers a diverse mix of plays–classical, cutting-edge and contemporary–designed to challenge students and entrance audiences.
