It features more than 800 performers over the age of five. Participants will compete in categories such as musical theatre, piano, violin, concert band, and choir, to name just a few.
The final concert will be held April 14 at 7 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Place.
“We’re really excited to be able to present so many talented performers from our region again this year,” said Karri Marcoux, Kiwanis Club president. “The response that we get from students, parents, and teachers, as well as the general public, is so overwhelming. It shows how important these festivals are to this community.”
The Kiwanis Dance Festival is also coming up later this spring. The April 25 event features nearly 350 performers in such disciplines as ballet, tap, lyrical jazz and modern dance.
The dance festival is being held at École Secondaire MacDonald-Cartier on Lasalle Boulevard starting at 7 p.m.
“The Kiwanis Club of Sudbury is thrilled to bring the community together through the Music and Dance Festivals,” said festival co-ordinator Heather Parker.
“The festivals are possible thanks to fundraising by Kiwanis, business and private sponsorship, and hundreds of hours of labour volunteered by our Kiwanis members and their friends and family. Providing children with the experience of these festivals makes it all worthwhile.”
Details of all competitions and performance venues are available on the festival website at www.kiwanisclubofsudbury.ca.
