Event description

Description

Peter MacKinnon Building is an impressive, 2 ½-storey, stone-clad, Collegiate Gothic-style building that was constructed between 1910 and 1912. Convocation Hall, a large assembly hall with a stage and wrap-around balcony that forms the central wing of the E-shaped building. Added at the request of Dean of Agriculture W.J. Rutherford during the design phase, the room was designed to seat 500-600 people as a meeting place for farmers and as a facility for use in extension work. Convocation Hall became the cultural centre of the university campus, hosting convocation ceremonies, dances, concerts, drama productions, societies’ meetings and conventions, and class reunions.

Thank you to University of Saskatchewan for their continued support and encouragement.

We respectfully acknowledge that this concert is being held on Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional territory of Cree Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
