Shelly Loeffler is a force to be reckoned with. The past-president of the Saskatoon Jazz Society, she has remained actively involved with the Bassment and is a strong and vocal supporter of live music in Saskatoon, and jazz in particular. She is also an acclaimed educator and has been instrumental in bringing innovative alternative teaching programs to Canadian schools. She has been a wonderful sounding board and bridge builder between our band and schools in Saskatoon, where we’re going to have the opportunity to meet and work with students of all different ages and musical ability!!
