I am writing on behalf of the Rainy River District Music Festival Association to thank all businesses and individuals who, so far this year, have generously contributed funds to the festival.
Your help is certainly appreciated.
This year, the F.W. Evans Scholarship, formerly awarded to piano students RCM grades 4-6 or age 11-13, has lapsed. As well, the number of Adjudicator’s Choice/Festival Concert Awards, given to deserving festival performers for which specific trophies are not available, may be cut or eliminated due to lack of sponsorship.
If there are any groups or individuals who would be interested in sponsoring a specific award or scholarship, please contact us.
This year’s festival runs April 5-9 and 12-16, with a final concert on Sunday, April 18. If you would like more information on the festival, please feel free to contact Katherine Williams (482-1417) or John Jankiewicz (274-5494).
Festival donations can be forwarded to: Festival Secretary, Box 806, Fort Frances, Ont., P9A 3N1.
Thank you to the community once again for your help.
