ESTEVAN - The committee for the Estevan and District Music Festival is now accepting registrations for this year’s celebration of local talent.
People could start signing up on Jan. 7. The deadline to be part of the festival is Jan. 27.
“This is very exciting as it has been a number of years since we have provided a fully live festival,” the festival said in an email to the Mercury. “We are hoping students will feel comfortable returning to our stage.”
People can register by visiting the Estevan and District Music Festival’s section on the musicfestivalsuite.com website. People must create a profile ID in order to enter.
Students under 18 must have parental permission in the form of an entrant’s parent profile, and also must have their teacher’s and parent’s profile ID numbers in order to enter.
Teachers can enter piece names and class numbers, as in previous years, once the parent and student profile are complete. The provincial syllabus can be found online under Syllabus & Regulations on the Saskatchewan Music Festival Association’s website at smfa.ca, with the local addendum found a Estevan-Addendum-2023.pdf.
The festival is scheduled for March 20-30. The piano portion of the festival is tentatively to be held from March 20-24. Vocal and speech arts would follow on March 27 and 28, and the festival is to wrap up with band on March 29 and 30.
Alisha Mann is the president of this year’s festival committee. If anyone has questions, she can be contacted at 306-421-3352 or email at email@example.com.
“We look forward to a wonderful music festival with hopes that our sponsors and community can continue to support the arts through this learning experience,” the festival said in the email.
