Festival

The 2019 Shuswap Music Festival will run from Tuesday, April 23 to Friday, May 3. Strings and Senior Piano sessions will be held during the first week of the Festival with Junior Piano and Vocal sessions during the second week. Band has been postponed for this year’s Festival due to budget restraints and staffing changes at the local schools. It is anticipated that the Band discipline will be held again in future years. The Gala Concert and presentation of awards and scholarships will be held at Nexus, First United Church, on Friday, May 3rd.

For the 2019 Festival, the ARCT level has been added to the Strings discipline. In addition, there has been a 25% increase in the registration of Vocal participants for this year’s Festival. Eight choirs will perform in two adjudicated sessions: four adult choirs will perform Tuesday evening, April 30th and four school choirs will perform in the morning session on Wednesday, May 1st at the First United Church.

The success of the Festival depends upon the patronage of the three Rotary Clubs of Salmon Arm, private donors, the sponsorship of businesses and organizations, and the hard work of many volunteers. The Society is grateful to all those who contribute. We need your support!
