This show will mark the return of the SJO performing live in concert at Saskatoon’s iconic Broadway Theatre!
Repertoire will include classic compositions and arrangements from the libraries of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Rob McConnell, as well as the work of other contemporary composers.
We're thrilled to announce that Saskatoon's own Graham Dyck will be joining us on stage to sing a selection of tunes.
Come enjoy our gifts of musical offerings all while supporting the SJO in person or through viewing our first ever online & in-real-time performance!
Every Artist has their story…..some are child prodigies who discover their love for music and talents at a young age, while others enable their musical passion to develop years later. The latter is that of Crooner, Singer and Songwriter Graham Dyck.
Graham took a different journey that had him discover how music flows from and within him, desperate to escape. This talented Crooner is a Paramedic and Firefighter, but for the past few years, any spare moments have been devoted to ramping up his music career. His crystal clear, pop-infused vocals captivate and engage while his stage presence and sincerity connects him with the audience like they are family.
With a random meeting with Saskatoon Jazz Legend Maurice Drouin, Graham was led into unleashing his musical talents. Maurice took him under his wing and mentored him to help him grow as both a musician and entertainer. Under the tutelage of Maurice Drouin and only after a few short years in the business, Graham Dyck continues to soar.
Winning a CBC Radio singing contest helped him decide that the time was right to finally enter the studio to release his anticipated debut album ‘Just For You’, a well-rounded introduction featuring classic covers and live cuts. This debut would open the door to sold out shows, notable Saskatchewan Jazz Festival performances including the Mainstage in 2019, TeleMiracle (broadcast live from Saskatoon’s TCU Place), National Anthems and intimate gigs province-wide.
Like most Artists, Graham originally started out performing covers of well-known classics but he had so much to say that he entered the studio to record an album of his own original songs ultimately releasing the full length album “Find Myself” in 2017. This album contains songs that cover an exploration of the emotions he felt during periods of personal challenges and triumphs. His music comes from a deep place that music lovers have strongly embraced.
Graham has a message to share with everyone and he loves to share his story through music.
