The South Cariboo’s vast talent will be on full display this month when the 100 Mile Festival of the Arts kicks off April 22.


The festival, now in its 42nd year, celebrates a range of performing artists from a variety of ages and backgrounds, who will share their talents at Martin Exeter Hall over two weeks.

Festival participants are sorted into four disciplines: piano, speech arts, instrumental and vocal.

Professional adjudicators are invited to assess and provide feedback to performers and one participant from each level and discipline will be recommended to attend the provincial arts festival, which takes place in Victoria later this spring.

This year’s adjudicators are Jonathan Girard, Director of Orchestras at the UBC School of Music, who will be overseeing the instrumental and piano performances, and Gaye-Lynn Kern, who has performed in opera professionally around the world and adjudicated more than 155 music festivals in Western Canada. Kern will be adjudicating the vocal, speech arts and drama component’s of this year’s festival.

More than 100 performances will take place on the stage of Martin Exeter Hall over the course of the 100 Mile Festival of the Arts, including elementary school choirs, local community bands and poetry readings of all genres.

The highlight of the festival for many is the Showcase Concert which takes place on the closing evening, May 5, at 7 p.m.
