Upcoming Events


The Greystone Singers and Aurora Voce singers conducted by Dr. Jennifer Lang will be celebrating the theme of “Light” in this special concert Illuminare. This performance highlights Elaine Hagenberg’s 5-movement work Illuminare that will be featured at Carnegie Hall by these Saskatchewan singers on June 1, 2024. Special appearances include the SSO musicians, Hussein Janmohamed conducting his own “Nur Reflections on Light”, and Dr. Steven Rayan and Anna Elliott’s work The Projection Project, an animated, light-based installation produced in celebration of USask's Quantum Innovation Signature Area of Research.

Quantum Days 2024

quanTA is proud to sponsor Quantum Days, Canada's premier quantum conference!  The event brings together established and early-career researchers, including students; industry representatives; policymakers; and other stakeholders in Canada's quantum future. The 2024 edition of Quantum Days will be Canada's largest quantum conference ever.  This presents an exciting and unique opportunity to engage with the frontier of quantum discovery and to network with quantum innovators from across the country and beyond.  We encourage you to register for the conference and we hope to see you there!
