The excitement is building!

Here are some last-minute reminders:


Greetings from the Board

Alan Murdock
Board President


There is no more powerful way to build a community than to celebrate a love of the arts.

We welcome everyone to come to see and hear some wonderful music and dance performances by our youth — some of whom will go on to professional careers in the arts. All performances are open to the public.

On behalf of the Rotary Club Of St. Albert and the St. Albert Rotary Music Festival Association, I have the privilege of expressing our appreciation and thanks to the musicians and dancers as well as their parents and teachers for the dedication they have put into getting ready to perform at this year’s Music Festival.

We take pride in putting on our Festival, which involves nearly 2,000 musicians and dancers with more than 750 adjudicated performances.

We are particularly appreciative of the more than 200 volunteers who will organize the performances at our venues.

Our focus on educational evaluation of each performance will continue with adjudicators of national level expertise.

The St. Albert Rotary Music Festival operating costs are over $80,000, which includes $12,000 in scholarships and awards. These costs are being met by the generosity of individual and family supporters, St. Albert and area businesses, government and community agencies, local churches and the members of the Rotary Club of St. Albert.

Please take a moment to view the supporters of Rotary Music Festival 2016 and consider adding your name to the community of St. Albert Rotary Music Festival supporters.

See you at ENCORE! on April 20th — a night to remember.

ALAN MURDOCK | President, St. Albert Rotary Music Festival Association
