Band and choir festival coming to Valley

The Comox Valley will host some of Vancouver Island's future musicians at the 22nd annual Comox Valley Concert Band and Choir Festival.

The Comox Valley will host some of Vancouver Island’s future musicians at the 22nd annual Comox Valley Concert Band and Choir Festival.

This year, the festival welcomes three clinicians from Western Canada whose insight, musical knowledge and passion for music making is sure to inspire this year’s group of students.

We invite members of the community to come out and enjoy some of the fine musicianship that is blooming under the direction of local band and choir teachers in the Comox Valley and all over Vancouver Island. A detailed schedule of performances is available on the SD71 website under Programs, Fine Arts.

Nov. 18 will feature the choral portion of the festival at Comox Pentecostal Church from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. A number of local schools — Aspen Park, Vanier, Highland and Mark Isfeld — will feature groups throughout the day, as well as choirs from Campbell River, Qualicum, Victoria and Langley.

Nov. 19 and 20 will feature the concert band portion of the festival at the Sid Williams Theatre. Local high schools will be joined by bands from other Island locations.

Doors open at 8:15 a.m. and people are welcome to come and go throughout the day.
