The Drumheller and District Music Festival Association received a six hundred dollar donation from the Drumheller Rotary Club on Monday, February 11th, 2019. 

"It helps with scholarships, we give out a lot of scholarships. Class awards, it helps a lot for things like that," explained Lynn Edwards, President of the Drumheller and District Music Festival Association.

The music festival has been in the Drumheller Valley for many years. It has seen participants go on to do more in the music industry.

"We have had a lot of our members over the years go on to have music careers. They have travelled all over the world with their music careers, so I think music is important," continued Edwards.

The Drumheller and District Music Festival Association is always looking for volunteers as many of their members have been there for a very long time.

"It starts on the 15th of March and goes to the 21st. The final concert is on the 22nd of March at the BCF," Edwards concluded.

Piano performances will take place at the Badlands Community Facility as well. The majority of the festival will be at the Kaleidoscope Theatre.
