Station Arts Centre | A must see performing arts destination.


This is my first time being in the
Station Arts Centre in Rosthern here. I’m blown away! The room, the raked
seating, the acoustics, the stage, the lighting, the grand piano. It’s a little bit of a dream. I walked in and I was like, wow, I was not expecting this. Then I thought, I wish all
communities have a theatre like this. Then I realized, well no,
if they did the this wouldn’t be special. It’s amazing. It is an awesome place!
I’ve never been to Rosthern. Just so quaint. It feels really, really cozy. This tour we are on right now for the
Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils, They’ve now for 50 years been promoting music and the performing arts in places
that aren’t Regina and Saskatoon. It’s allowed the performing arts culture
to thrive in a lot of these rural places. The station is a really special place
because it’s a 1902 heritage building. It’s the original train station that was here in Rosthern. What’s important today is it continues to be a hub. It’s a place where people can gather and
experience top-notch arts experiences. It’s a wonderful spot for people to share art and ideas. I have always found the audiences in the rural places to be just as receptive and eager
to sit down for a concert as in the city. I really encourage people to come out
and listen to live music because it’s an experience, it’s a happening. When there’s a great reciprocation
between audience and stage that’s when the magic happens. It’s also a community thing
where you get to experience the same thing with your friends
or with the rest of the community. People buy a ticket —
and they buy ticket to a show consciously. Subconsciously they’re buying a ticket
to feel something. I find that live music it can be really magical that way.
