Mayor’s Message Welcome to this year’s virtual edition of the Lethbridge and District Music and Speech Arts Festival, continuing the time-honoured tradition of providing a showcase for the talents of young people in Lethbridge and the surrounding area. The festival provides a public platform for youth to express their passion for performance in music and speech arts. The experience has been a stepping stone to launch many careers in the performing arts as well as a life-long appreciation for the value that the arts bring to our lives. On behalf of Lethbridge City Council, I sincerely thank the members of the Lethbridge and District Music and Speech Arts Festival for the many hours they have devoted to organizing this very important event in our community. Without these dedicated volunteers, many young people would not have the opportunity to participate in music and speech arts. I would also like to thank all the festival sponsors and scholarship supporters, the teachers who have dedicated their time to encourage the best efforts of the competitors, as well as family and friends who are always there to offer support. It’s no surprise that this festival has developed such a positive and richly deserved reputation over the years, because your contributions have paved the way. Most of all, I would like to send my very best wishes to all participants and acknowledge the time and effort you have dedicated to preparing your presentations. We look forward to the time when we can enjoy the festival in person. Good luck to all of our performers! Chris Spearman Mayor

Welcome to the 90th  Lethbridge and District Music and Speech Arts Festival. “The Festival has already established one fact, that Lethbridge has attained a position as a recognized musical centre in the west…” was stated in the Lethbridge Herald, May 25, 1916. They went on to say the first Lethbridge Festival “of which the idea is purely an educational one; to establish a standard for music and to inspire an interest in things musical” was the beginning of a long history of Festivals. Through the years Musical Theatre and Speech Arts were included into the Festivals. The 1916 Festival is the first time it had been held out of Edmonton. Adjudicators were brought over from England and they traveled from one Festival to another in Canada. The Lieutenant Governor came to award the prizes at the final concert of the first festival in Alberta.  From 1916 - 1929 the festival would alternate between Edmonton, Calgary, and Lethbridge.  People would travel to Lethbridge for the Festival from Calgary and Edmonton areas. Lethbridge held its first “stand-alone” Festival in 1930. Kiwanis began hosting the Festival in 1952 and did so until 2017, when the Lethbridge and District Music and Speech Arts Festival Society took on the hosting responsibility. We are honored to host the 90 th   Festival which allows performers to share their talents and to receive adjudication in their chosen fields of study. Throughout the next two weeks our virtual Festival will host a variety of participants in their chosen field of study. We thank the professional adjudicators for their support and encouragement of our young people through a virtual adjudication format. Stars of the festival concert will take place through YouTube on April 16th. I encourage you to contact Megan Wittig through our website lethmsf.org. This concert will feature performances chosen through our adjudicator’s recommendations. Watch for announcements made through our Facebook and Twitter posts and on our website. We encourage to watch for our many postings of this Festival’s history and current offerings. Expressions – A festival of Flavors, our special brew of coffee developed by local Roasters is currently available at Cupper’s by special request. Please support us by drinking a cup of coffee. New members are always welcome to the Society through contacting our office at: Suite 4B Professional Building - 740 - 4 Avenue S, Lethbridge, AB, T1J 0N9, (403) 381-6512. Sandy Brunelle Board Chair
