Nelson Musical Festival Association
is planning to have a live Festival in March/April 2022.
Of course, this will depend entirely on the state of the COVID pandemic and BC Public Health Orders.
Although we are planning to have live performances in our various venues, we anticipate restricted admissions and a controlled number of people allowed in the venues. Therefore we will also live-stream the performances for the benefit of an audience to watch the participants perform.
It is early days yet but we will frequently update this website as plans are confirmed and COVID information is known. We will be as flexible as possible in our planning to achieve the best possible Festival experience for our participants.
Please refer to this website for any changes to the Kootenay Festival of the Arts 2022.
Our scheduled dates:
Dance: March 28 – April 2
Piano: April 4 – 8
Speech Arts: April 4 – 8
Choral and Vocal: April 4 – 8
