|Something everyone in Didsbury looks forward to is "music, music, music" - and we're all gearing up for this year's Music Festival in Olds.|
The focus of the Olds and District Kiwanis Music Festival is teaching and learning. Festival participants are adjudicated in a workshop environment with the expectation that they will come away from the Festival with new skills and ideas, as well as increased motivation and enthusiasm.
Besides bands, the Festival offers adjudication in Choir, Vocals, Musical Theatre, String, Piano, Speech and Choral Speech. This year's Band Adjudicators are Ken Rogers and Bob Bailey.
All Didsbury High School ensembles will be performing in the Olds and District Kiwanis Music Festival, as will Westglen's Grade 7 and 8 bands.
Parents and friends are welcome to attend Festival performances, so come cheer on our students, all outstanding ambassadors for our school and community!
All performances are at the TransCanada Theatre in Olds (4500 - 50 Street). Performances are open to the public and are free of charge.
