Music Festival’s grand concert displays best of the best

Now in its 47th year, the Stettler and District Music Festival wraps up its week of judging with its Grand Concert on April 23.

Since last week, performers have taken stage at Stettler’s Performing Arts Centre or the Alliance Church to demonstrate their skills in choral singing, speech, band, vocal choral, piano and musical theatre performances.

Now in its 47th year, the Stettler and District Music Festival wraps up its week of judging with its Grand Concert on April 23, starting at 7 p.m.

The show will be the best of the hundreds of performances witnessed during the previous week by judges, which wrap up today, April 22, with musical threatre at the performing arts centre.

The festival, which started in 1969 as a three-day event now stretches to 10 days. More than 700 entries are received each year, and scholarships awarded throughout the show come in at more than $10,000.

Hundreds of volunteers help keep the show alive, with many of these volunteers made up of past performers.

Tickets and programs for the final show are available at Wells Furniture for $10.
