Shuswap members of the BC Registered Music Teachers Association will celebrate Canada Music Week with a student recital at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18 at First United Church.

The purpose of Canada Music Week is to shine a light on the importance of Canadian music; to support composers and performers of Canadian music; to introduce contemporary music to young Canadians and stimulate a keener appreciation and understanding of this music, and to encourage music educators to widen their knowledge and experience of Canadian works.

Canada Music Week was initiated in 1960 to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Canadian Federation of Music Teacher’s Association and is celebrated during the third week of November.

 

Admission to Sunday’s concert is by donation.
