Festival

2020 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Shuswap Music Festival. Young musicians have been encouraged to pursue excellence, provided performance opportunities, and celebrated for their talent at the two-week festival held every April. Among the many regional participants over the past 20 years are those who have chosen music as their career. Some have become professional musicians, teachers or accomplished performing artists. The Shuswap Music Festival takes pride in being a part of their music journey.

The 20th Annual Shuswap Music Festival will run from Monday, April 20 to Friday, May 1st, 2020. The Festival Society is pleased to announce that the Band category has been reinstated and anticipates a robust festival. Strings and Senior Piano will be held during the first week of the Festival with Junior Piano, Band, Voice and Choir sessions scheduled for the second week. The Gala Concert showcasing the ‘Best of the Festival’ and presentation of awards will be held at Nexus at First United Church on Friday, May 1st. Please note that Nexus is a ‘scent-free’ venue.

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!
