Hey Music Pals!
You might have heard that we’ve postponed August’s Invermere Music Festival until 2021.
Along with our new CVArts Executive Director, Sami Wackerle and Ben Cameron (Music Program Manager), we’ve been taking advantage of this unplanned break in the action to discuss our wildest dreams for the festival’s return next year. Tough news for the new Music Director, right? Not true. I have learned over the years to make sure to turn to community for the best of ideas before getting too far ahead of ourselves in at Festival HQ!
So, in June we’re passing the mic + art supplies over to you, your families, classes, and partners up-and-down the Valley. We’re asking you to share your best fest memories (IMF or elsewhere) and dreams for the Music Fest August 13-14, 2021 so we can see which of your dreams we can make reality.
Everyone who submits a poster or participates in one of our Zoom roundtables will be entered to win a four pack of tickets to the 2021 Music Festival where you may just find those dreams in action.
There are three ways to get involved:
1. Create your Imagine 2021 Poster entry from home by visiting our website to learn how to create and share your dreams for the festival with us on-line. You can also pop it by our mailbox on the porch at Pynelogs.
2. Create an Imagine 2021 Poster entry in person at Pynelogs June 13 and June 20 between 11:00am and 2:00pm. We’ll provide all the art supplies, hand- sanitizer, and safely social distanced indoor and outdoor spaces you need to turn your dreams into poster reality.
3. Register for one of the Imagine 2021 virtual discussion sessions through Zoom on June 15, 16, and 17 to chat with us and others about your dreams for IMF 2021.
Some very loose steps…because we want you to highstep to your own beat!
