Canada Music Week celebration this Tuesday

The two concerts span the age range - 2 to 83, making this an intergenerational experience. Featuring local performers, the concerts - one at noon, the other at 7 p.m., will also feature works from Canadian composers and performers, with genres spanning easy listening to rock to Raffi, Country and Classical. Highlights will be the Biggar Central School 2000 band, elementary and school groups, emerging choral singers ranging from 2-6. Original compositions from local composers, family groups, and well as vocal and piano ensembles/trios will take centre stage on the afternoon.
The noon concert will feature school groups and youth groups/performers, while the evening performance will have the whole variety of age ranges, with a wide variety of musical styles, all in a 45-minute show.
Both concerts are ‘admission by donation’. The Majestic concession booth will be open for both concerts.
The event is a recognition of the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers Association, and is the annual Canada Music Week celebration recognizing Canadian composers and performers.
