It's a look at the world of performance art.

Her performance blends video, music and visual art.

This work pushes the boundaries and asks the audience to think about life-changing moments like marriage and death.

There will be shows Friday and Saturday night at the MacKenzie Art Gallery.

This performance will be in English but it still has the magical story we all know and love.

Hallelujah! It's the Holidays

It's time to really get some Christmas cheer. 

The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra is combining forces with the Saskatoon Community Choir to bring down the house this weekend.

There will be a singalong and even a visit from Santa.

It's all part of the Holiday Gospel Spectacular at TCU Place on Saturday night.

'Till You Drop

This show is seven hours, with 17 players and tons of music.

The 2nd Annual Pianothon for the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre is on this weekend.

It will feature performances by Don Griffith, Ross Nykiforuk and Martin Janovsky just to name a few.

All you need to get in the door is a non-perishable food item or a five-dollar donation to the food bank.

The fun kicks off at 4:30 p.m. on Friday at the Bassment.
