We are hosting a fundraising concert at St. George’s to support 4 very talented local young musicians who have been selected, through a long adjudication process, to go to the BC Provincials of Performing Arts, which will take place June 1-3 in Fort Saint John, BC. These youth will put on a show of their chosen Festival pieces, all Classical. Their goal is to try to recover some of their expenses incurred through travel, accommodation, and accompanist fees through the Provincial Festival. As always, it is a good performance opportunity for them as well, so even if their expenses from this concert are covered, (the accompanist for example) just the chance to perform is good for them before their event in Fort St. John.
These kids are:
Max Sander, 16, violin, Grade 9 Royal Conservatory of Musical Level
Peter Hyde, 14, viola, Grade 9 RCM Level
Maddy Erickson, 17, violin, ARCT RCM Level (grade 11+)
Lucy Towes, 17, violin, Grade 9 RCM Level,
Piano Accompanist: Sharon Wishart, professional accompanist, hired by the Provincial Festival to accompany in Fort Saint John.
