A special thanks to our amazing team, devoted volunteers, great partners, passionate musicians, sponsors and to you all, for coming and contributing to the success of this unique Festival in Manitoba. I would like to also highlight the efforts made by Pastor Jim Vickers, Diakon Hilda Vickers and Erickson’s Lutheran Church Team with the fundraising for a new grand piano for the super acoustically Erickson Church. Moreover, we would like to extend our gratitude to the anonymous sponsor that helped with the acquisition of this grand piano. After all, there is nothing better than music to connect a community and to unite generations.
Once again, please accept my warmest welcome and best wishes for a memorable festival.
