Cello and Harp Festival a big success

Thanks to all who participated in the Cowichan Cello and Harp Festival Feb. 23 and 24, 2018.  We had students from Powell River, Harrison Lake, and Vancouver, as well as from all over the island, from Courtenay to Sydney. Bravo to all who attended - it was a wonderful sound and playing experience with 18 harps and 9 celli!

Morag Northey was the harp clinician and Marilyn Rummel led the harps, and conducted the big ensemble.  The weekend featured instrument workshop classes, a great deal of ensemble playing and 2 concerts, one a more traditional one, and the 2nd a theatrical concert written by Morag Northey. There were parts at all levels from beginner to challenging for 4 pieces, and Morag and Marilyn are definitely ready to offer the workshop in other locations -  contact Marilyn if you are interested.
