Piano and vocal classes have wrapped up for the 2019 Boissevain Festival of the Arts.

All that remains is adjudication for the visual art entries and that will take place on March 14th.

Piano entries were up by about 40 to 240 this year and Kim Penner a member of the vocal committee was pleased with their entries. “Our individual numbers were okay but the number of choirs was down slightly and we aren’t sure why but we hope to bring that number back up in the future.”
