New executive elected to Pacific Northwest Music Festival board

The Pacific Northwest Music Festival elected a new executive at their annual general meeting last December. Thirteen committee members attended and voted in Jane Blix as the new secretary/treasurer, replacing long standing secretary Irene Kuhar, who retired after 40 years.

Carol Laird has taken the recording secretary position over from other members to free them up to assist with the secretarial duties.

The committee is in full swing gearing up for the 53rd Pacific Northwest Music Festival which will be held this year from April 12 to 28, finishing the 17-day competition with the scholarship and gala evenings, showcasing the top performers as chosen by the adjudicators. With approximately 1,400 entries last year the committee is asking for volunteers to come forward and help in any way possible. Sponsors are also needed for awards — donations are always gratefully received.

PNMF has a new website with all the information.
