here's the word from the president of the music festival:
It is with much regret we have to announce that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Provincial Health Office’s extension of the provincial wide restrictions the Cowichan Music Festival for 2021 has been cancelled.
We wish to thank all the teachers, studios and performers for all the hard work that has gone into the preparation of the pieces for this year's festival.
This was a very difficult decision for our Society to make. However, we do not wish to put anyone’s health in jeopardy.
We are hoping that the Performing Arts BC Festival will be able to be held in June of this year (Cranbrook). It is our understanding that those participants who were slated to go in 2020 will still be eligible this year (2021).
All forms and monies that have been submitted will be returned.
We look forward to good health for all and a Festival in 2022!
Carol Newington, President , Cowichan Music Festival
