Rhythm Festival ~ Nov. 24, 2018

Join us for our first performance of the year in a family friendly venue!

Cute kids performing!
The back of my head and some cute MYC kids participating.

When: Saturday Nov. 24th, 2018.
Where: The Bridge Church, Kanata. (Directions).
Class Times:

  • Sunshine 1 – 9:30am
  • Sunbeams 1 – 10:30am
  • Sunbeams 2 – 11:30am
  • Moonbeams 2 – 1:00pm

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to show time and come sit together as a group.

Expect to be at the church for an hour. You may also stay for other performances throughout the day.

Cost: This is considered a class. There is no additional cost to you.  This event is ran exclusively by volunteers.

Please email me by November 1st to let me know if your child is able to attend or not.  

Why: For younger students in particular, there are not many venues to perform in. The Rhythm Festival is perfect, because it provides child friendly adjudication and interaction with peers who also take music lessons. Students will get to practice in class for the performance, so they usually don’t get nervous. Music is meant to be shared, so when I find a positive place for that first performance to happen, I am promising you that you’ll be pleased with the day!

This year, adjudicator Leo Brooks of Treefrog Percussion returns to give insight into playing various percussion instruments, and how to enhance your performance. His positive comments and zest for performance was loved by the audience in past years.

Please contact me if you have any further questions about the event.
