I (Melissa) recently had the immense pleasure of adjudicating winds and brass for the Kootenay Festival of the Arts and Brandon Festival of the Arts this spring. Thank you to the festivals for having me and thank you to the performers for giving so much of themselves to their music. I hope the experience was positive, helpful and gave you a chance to learn.
Also thank you to the local teachers for encouraging your students to participate. It can be very hard to make time for all the activities you would like to provide to your students, I’m honoured that you took the effort. I hope you will continue to encourage your students to perform.
If you had an experience you would like to share drop me a line!
