It's less than a month until Drumheller and area talent takes the stage.

The Drumheller and District Music Festival is approaching fast and many valley participants have been hard at work preparing their performances.

"Our entries are down a little bit, we had some glitches with our computer and people were having trouble getting access to registration," explained Lynn Edwards, Chair of the Drumheller and District Music Festival. "We do have more speech this year, so we are excited about that. We have enough people to put on a good performance everyday."

Registration for the annual music festival closed on February 3.

"We start off on March 20 with piano, March 23 is band and instrumental, then choirs on March 24 and we start with dance and musical theatre on the weekend," said Edwards. "We pick up with vocal on March 27, then speech on March 30 and our final concert is on March 31."

"It's not always the winners of the classes that are performing. We ask the ajudicators to give us an idea of who they think should be performing, quite often it's more for entertainment value," noted Edwards. "It runs for about two hours, then we present the awards and scholarships."

The piano performances and final concert will take place at the Badlands Community Facility, while the remaining presentations are scheduled to take place at the Kaleidoscope Theatre.
