Connecting communities through music

For over 20 years, Prairie Debut has linked Canadian classical musicians and world music artists to over 80 mostly rural communities in Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and the Yukon.

EVENTS

Prairie Debut is actively working to support Canadian classical and global musicians and our presenting partners as we evolve from an unprecedented time. Wherever possible, we are creating opportunities to connect audiences with our family of artists through virtual and live events, as health guidelines allow. In 2020, we introduced the Close to Home concept to facilitate concert performances involving local artists.
