Going out on a high note

The 53rd Thompson Festival of the Arts came to a close May 28-29 with a pair of highlights concerts at the Letkemann Theatre.

Throughout those two nights, the stage was packed with plenty of talented youth who made a big impression on the festival’s various judges since this multi-stage event began back in late April.

The first night mainly focused on the very best the community has to offer in terms of music, spoken word poetry and visual arts, whereas Wednesday’s show added some of the community’s best young dancers into the mix.

Outside of collecting trophies and medals for their efforts, some of the performers even earned financial prizes through scholarships.

Altogether, organizer Jolene Brown said there were around 450 participants in the 2019 festival and she’s already looking for volunteers to help out with next year’s event.
