The 45th annual Lochaber Music Festival will take place from
Friday 15th - Thursday 21st March 2019
The 2019 Programme is shown by clicking the links on the left.
A warm welcome to Lochaber Music Festival 2019 – whether you are a competitor, parent,
teacher, sponsor or audience-member. Your support is greatly appreciated, and we
hope that you enjoy yourself!
We are also delighted to welcome our six adjudicators and official accompanist, Peter
Rose – and hope that his experience is a happy one too.
This year’s team has changed slightly, with Lilian Macdonald and Maureen Sutherland
stepping down from their roles as chair and treasurer, yet remaining supportive of
myself, Catherine Cameron, and Iain Joseph MacDonald, who have taken up those roles.
We thank them for their ongoing dedication to the festival, as well as all of the
other secretaries, stewards and committee members who have spent so much time organising
this annual event. We are delighted, too, to mention that (after 9 years’ vacancy)
we have found an honorary secretary…
Please remember that it is possible to become a member or patron of the festival,
and that you will receive a syllabus, programme and season ticket allowing entry
to all competitions through the post, if you do join. Also, we are always pleased
to have new committee members.
I highly recommend that you attend the evening sessions featuring our more advanced
singers and instrumentalists, particularly those on Tuesday evening when the Premier
Vocal and Instrumental Awards and the Rotary-sponsored Young Musician of the Year
competitions take place - and, of course, the final concert on Thursday, when many
highlights of the festival will perform, before our presentation of trophies and
Please note that if a competitor needs to withdraw from a class or has a conflict
of timings between classes, or if an error is found in the programme, you should
contact me immediately. For disabled access to venues, please contact me in advance.
