West Coast Youth Fiddle Summit
January 31 to February 2, 2020 in beautiful Nanaimo BC
The West Coast Youth Fiddle Summit is an opportunity for advancing young fiddle ensembles in Western Canada to meet, build friendships, and make great music together. This year’s participants include the Yukon Fiddleheads (Whitehorse), North Shore Celtic Ensemble (N. Vancouver), the Bow Valley Fiddlers (Calgary) and Fiddelium (Nanaimo).
Participants will have a chance to learn from each ensemble’s director to develop shared repertoire, improve technical aspects of their playing, and explore other aspects of performance and stage craft. This event is designed to honour your commitment to your instrument and your ensemble but also to create new and lasting friendships with your peers.
The fees for 2020 will be $130 per individual ensemble member. This includes all workshops and activities Friday afternoon through to Sunday afternoon. It also includes pizza dinner on Friday, snacks on Saturday, and the potluck dinner and dance on Saturday evening. Accommodations will be provided by billet families from the Nanaimo fiddle community.
In 2020 we will present our final concert at Nanaimo’s wonderful Port Theatre! The concert is on Sunday February 2 at 2pm. Tickets will be available from the Port Theatre box office in November.
Registration is now closed.
