The Cariboo Festival committee would like to announce the launch of their new website.

It is up and running with an address of www.cariboofestival.ca.

The programs for all the disciplines will be accessible March 3.

Information is already available for all 2014 adjudicators on the website.

Some of the highlights for this year’s festival include all school bands performing, 50 violin and fiddle pieces, and 25 humorous poems being recited and dramatized.

There will be choirs and soloists performing baroque through contemporary pieces and a special night of piano hosting the Gail Carson Chopin competition along with a Haydn Concerto.

In total there are 73 band and instrumental entries, 72 Speech Arts entries, 62 Vocal and Choral entries, 96 Piano entries and 11 Creative Writing entries.

Band and instrumental will be held March 31 and April 1 at the St. Peter’s Anglican church and some of the schools.

The speech arts take place April 2 and 3 at the Calvary Church.

The vocal and choral section will be held April 7 and 8 at The United Church.

Piano is being held April 14 and 15 at the Calvary Church.

The committee invites the community to visit the website and check out performance times, sponsors and so much more. Mark your calendar to come out and support your local artists.

Come out and hear the performances and glean informative and often entertaining critiques from the adjudicators.

Let’s all celebrate the arts of this community together.
