These sessions are open to everyone, not just festival participants, at no cost. They will take place after all of the adjudication sessions have been completed. Please refer to the program for time and place.
A master class, or workshop, will give everyone the opportunity for instruction on a less formal basis with the adjudicator. Their expertise on a variety of topics can be explored and shared.
If you are interested in learning tips about piano, band and instrumental, jazz band, speech arts, vocal, strings or dance, you are most welcome to attend master classes.
Please let us know you are attending by signing up on the sheet available at each session or by e-mailing Val Thompson at email@example.com
Syd Sengotta, adjudicator for Speech Arts, will offer a master class that is
open to festival participants and members of the public on March 2 at 7 pm
in Evergreen Theatre. Adjudicators from all festival disciplines will offer
master classes after their sessions conclude.
