FESTIVAL A GREAT SUCCESS!

The 27th annual festival from all accounts was a great success! From the great Festival Concerts featuring UBC University Singers and The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra to the excellent Showcase Concerts featuring festival participants, this was indeed a successful event.  Many groups told us they had the best clinics they have ever had so our facilitators were once again top notch. 

We look forward to seeing you at the 28th annual festival which will take place April 11-14 at the Banff Centre.
