Fes­ti­val pres­i­dent of­fers clar­i­fi­ca­tion

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

On be­half of the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee of the 43rd re­gional Ki­wa­nis Club of Car­bon­ear mu­sic fes­ti­val, which runs from March 9-15, I would like to clar­ify an ar­ti­cle head­lined “Mak­ing mu­sic in Car­bon­ear” that ap­peared on Page A1 of the Feb. 26, 2013 edi­tion of The Com­pass.

Dur­ing an in­ter­view I was asked my thoughts re­gard­ing the success of the fes­ti­val and why I thought there was an in­crease in reg­is­tra­tion. In my re­sponse I stated it was be­cause of the num­bers of former par­tic­i­pants of the fes­ti­val who are now mu­sic teach­ers in this area, and their sup­port for the fes­ti­val was ex­cep­tional.

I also gave some names as ex­am­ples of this group. The names given were ex­am­ples only and not an allinclu­sive list. If I of­fended other in­di­vid­u­als by their ex­clu­sion I would like to of­fer a sin­cere apol­ogy.

The Ki­wa­nis Mu­sic Fes­ti­val has been a tremen­dous success be­cause of the involvement of all mu­sic teach­ers in the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tionPla­cen­tia area. With­out their sup­port we would not be able to con­tinue and of­fer the ex­cep­tional fes­ti­val on an an­nual ba­sis.

For that sup­port the fes­ti­val com­mit­tee, as well as the Ki­wa­nis Club of Car­bon­ear, is very grate­ful.

In ad­di­tion we look for­ward to work­ing with all of you for this fes­ti­val as well as many more in the fu­ture.
