Nelson Supporters 2020

Supporters and Donors

thanksWe have been well supported over the years by people who believe that
young students of the performing arts need a well-recognized venue
where they can showcase their talents
and receive timely positive, professional adjudication.

Most of Canada’s performing artists have developed their skills at festivals like ours.


We sincerely thank you for your generous support.
