Cariboo Festival 2012 continues this week with the piano section of competition taking place April 23 to 26 at Calvary Tabernacle Church.

Lori Elder of Prince George, a well-known pianist, teacher and adjudicator, is the festival adjudicator for this final section of festival competition.

Elder holds a masters degree in piano performance from the University of Toronto, a bachelor of music from the University of British Columbia and ARCT (performer) certification.

Her principal teachers were Kay Wilson, Dale Reubart, Robert Silverman and Boris Lysenko.

Elder has won numerous competitions and has performed extensively as a soloist and chamber player in many regions of Canada and the United States.

She has taught in Toronto, Vancouver, and at the Alberta College Conservatory in Edmonton.

She currently operates an independent studio in Prince George where she specializes in senior piano and pedagogy.

Elder also enjoys the duet and two-piano repertoire which she has performed with Thelma O’Neill and David Sproule.

She is currently appearing with Linda Stobbe as the Great White Piano Duo educating teachers on the values of concerto playing. Along with a busy adjudicating schedule, Elder also presents workshops and master classes throughout the province.

The Honours Concert will conclude the festival on May 5 at 7 p.m. at Cariboo Bethel Church. During the honours concert delegates recommended by the adjudicators to participate in the provincial festival will be announced. A Spotlight Performance will not be held this year due to a shortage of volunteers.

This is the final week of the month-long festival which included entries in band and instrumental, creative writing, vocal, speech arts, and piano disciplines.
