It is with great pleasure and privilege that I present this foreword for the 2017
Syllabus of the Lochaber Music Festival which runs from Friday 17th March to Thursday
23rd March 2017. As you are reading this Syllabus, perhaps you could share it with
anyone you know who might be interested in participating or coming along to hear
The Music Festival seeks to encourage participation in the Arts at all levels. We
would very much welcome the participation of individuals, music making groups and
country dancing groups in Lochaber and beyond.
Please study the Syllabus and the rules carefully. It is very important that you
note the closing datefor entries which is 20th January 2017. The Programme must
be prepared immediately after the closing date and we would be grateful if you could
submit your entries, preferably using the electronic entry form, as early as possible.If there are any queries, please pass these to: firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 01687450289.
The Young Musician of the Year Competition, sponsored by Lochaber Rotary Club, is
separate from the Festival itself but is run at the same time. Details are given
in the Syllabus and we would urge those of you who have developed their talents,
to consider entering.
Sincere thanks go to the teachers, tutors and all the competitors for your hard work,
and to the general public for your support. My thanks also go to our Membership
Secretary, Treasurer and the Committee for their dedication.
Finally, if you have not already done so, could I encourage you to join or renew
your membership of the Association, or consider becoming a patron. The Festival
is dependent on the generosity of its supporters to remain viable so please complete
the form at the front of this Syllabus and send it to our Membership Secretary with
your contribution. Members and patrons receive a complimentary programme and a ticket
which gives entry to all the competitions. Membership renewal for 2016 – 2017 (including
the coming Festival) was due on 1st April.
