It's not just Cowichan that gets to enjoy the cream of the Cowichan Music Festival.

No less than nine of this year's participants have been selected to move on to the provincial competition later this year in Penticton.

Scheduled to make the trip are:


Senior Ballet: Madeleine Campagne

Intermediate Stage: Giuliana Mansueti


Strings: Nathan Bomans

Speech Arts

Junior: Kara Labelle

Classical Voice

Intermediate: Hanna Seinen

Musical Theatre Voice

Junior: Alexandra Platt

Intermediate: Ellen Reimer

Meanwhile, a pair of local choirs have also qualified. But rather than attending the event themselves, they will be forwarding CDs of the original music for judging.

The successful choirs are Cowichan Valley Youth Chorale re Dr. & Mrs. J.F.K. English category, directed by Sheila Johnson, and the Shawnigan Lake School Chamber Choir in the Richard W. Cooke category, directed by Shannon Tyrrell.
