It is just three weeks since the Comox Valley Youth Music Centre concluded its 44th annual Festival of Summer Sounds and rave reviews are still coming in for Lori Mazey’s production of A Chorus Line with the added bonus feature Glee Club.
Musical theatre students chatting on Facebook report “life-changing“ experiences during their stay in the Valley.
“I didn’t know I could dance”……”best summer of my life” ……reverberate in cyberspace.
New friends made, new vistas opened, new technique learned and new talents discovered, new levels of instrumental artistic achievement — all of these and more instill the passion and creativity that will last a lifetime for these young students.
CYMC’s board of directors is proud to call the 2011 season a complete success and gratefully acknowledge the support they have received from the community.
There are so many people and organizations to mention and thank as this is truly a community accomplishment. We want to acknowledge each and every one so please see your names in our ad on page A29.
Special mention must go to our loyal audiences, all of the parents who entrusted us with their talented off spring and all who supported our raffle with ticket purchases.
And now, as we file away classical scores and send scripts back to New York City, return borrowed props and put the finishing touches on our 2011 archives, it is time to take a well-deserved break. Before very long we will be dreaming about the Festival of Summer Sounds 2012.
