AN INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF THE PERFORMING ARTS
Amateur performers of all ages in piano, vocal and choral, strings, speech arts and dance are invited to perform in this annual event that has been running continuously since 1945, making it the longest-running cultural event in qathet Regional District.
The festival is based on the fundamental idea of giving all participants the best possible support for their artistic development. It provides the opportunity to learn from each other and gain stage experience in a friendly atmosphere. Every performer who enters in this spirit will learn and improve with feedback from accredited adjudicators.
The Rotary Club of Powell River has sponsored the festival since 2003, reflecting its support of the development of amateur performers. Its members with others from the community sit on a volunteer festival committee. Many other community volunteers assist the committee as discipline heads, adjudicators’ secretaries, stage crews and theatre assistants at every session.
