Welcome!

The Saskatchewan Choral Federation is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the elevation and enhancement of choral music in Saskatchewan through education and awareness.  Established in 1978, the SCF works to promote the art of choral music, encourage high standards of artistic attainment, maximize the number of singers and choirs in the province and grow and develop appreciative audiences.  Significant funding for these activities is received from the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation with the assistance of SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
