We are always looking for new members. You don't have to be a "professional" in the fields of music or speech arts, just have an interest in the young people of our community and the promotion of music and speech arts and be willing to help out wherever you can. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
It was another successful 2017/2018 Festival, with over2100 people involved as participants, audience members and volunteers. Our patrons were very generous again and we are very grateful for their support.
Our highly qualified adjudicators enjoyed the performances from 280 entries with 103 piano, 71 voice, 48 instrumental and 58 speech performances. The adjudicators chose the following performers to attend the Provincial Festival which was held in Victoria this year: Voice: Claire Kreschuk, Emily Thain, Baylee Shields and Courtney Cave as Competitors and Kayleigh Jacobson, Devyn Johnstone, Mia Wier and Cate McArthur as Merited Participants (observers). Speech: Adrianne Gardner an Cate McArthur as Competitors and Mikaela Anderson and Alexa Ohlund as Merited Participants. Instrumental: Hailey McNabb, Emma Donnelly and Baylee Shields as Merited Participants. Piano: Julia Siclari as Merited Participant. Also this year, the PSO Choir was chosen to compete by recording and submitting an entry which is a rare accomplishment. We are very proud of our local high school choir!
Our 3rd Annual Concert of Celebration was held on June 13th, and we thank the attendees for donating almost $600 toward our cause of raising awareness of the Arts in our community. We thank the 100 Mile & District Arts Council for their support in sponsoring the concert.
