Only two more days and the Drumheller Valley will be ringing with the sounds from the upcoming Music Festival season.
"Piano is Monday and Tuesday at the BCF, then we have band and instrumental on Thursday at the Kaleidoscope, choirs are Friday at Kaleidoscope, dance is Saturday at Kaleidoscope, musical theatre is Sunday at Kaleidoscope, vocal is Monday and then we don't have anything until Thursday which is speech," stated Lynn Edwards, Chair of the Drumheller and District Music Festival.
On March 31 there will be a final concert, which is when the awards and scholarships will be handed out. There is an admission fee of $10 for a family.
Edwards mentioned that this year registration numbers are down quite a bit.
"There was a little bit of a problem of people getting access to registration. We have some young women that have joined the committee that are more tech savvy, so we're hoping they can get us into the 21st century and help us out with this," she noted.
"We are always blown away with the talent in this valley. We've been struggling the past couple years with speech, but this year it's up and vocal is down. It sort of fluctuates and it tends to with their ages for the students."
The Drumheller and District Music Festival gets underway this Monday, March 20, at 9:00 a.m. at the Badlands Community Facility.
