Concert planned for Canada Music Week

The Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Associations celebrates Canada Music Week during the third week of November.

The week includes Nov. 22, the day honouring St. Cecilia, the patron Saint of Music.

The aims of Canada Music Week are to introduce contemporary music to Canadian students and to stimulate a keener appreciation of this music, to encourage music teachers to widen their knowledge and experience of Canadian works, to support composers and performers of Canadian works, to bring to the attention of the public, through various means, the importance of Canadian Music and to emphasize not only Canadian work but also the significance of music in our society in general.

The South Okanagan Branch of the B.C. Registered Music Teachers’ Association will host the 34th Canada Music Week Recital on Sunday Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. at the Shatford Centre in Penticton.

This annual celebration of music composed solely by Canadian composers features performances by music students from Osoyoos to Summerland.

As well, the South Okanagan BCRMTA will present scholarships sponsored by the Diamond Jubilee chapter of the IODE, as well as the Madame Janisch award and plaque to students who have achieved stellar results on their conservatory music examinations.

Tickets are available at the door.

All proceeds go to the SORMTA scholarship fund.
