The Upper Island Musical Festival is once again looking forward to a thrilling season of talented piano performances from Nanaimo and area youth and young adults. Nanaimo arts enthusiasts and music lovers of all ages are encouraged to take in a variety of dance, musical, and dramatic performances at several venues around the city. The Piano section will be hosted at St. Andrew's United Church.

For more than 80 years, the Upper Island Musical Festival has provided opportunities and venues for young dancers, pianists, singers, violinists, dramatic orators, and other musicians to perform in front of enthusiastic and supportive audiences. Most performers are between the ages of 8 and 18, although there are several recital categories for adults. Their performances are observed by qualified and highly respected adjudicators, who provide encouragement and advice for improvement. The most successful performers go on to represent Nanaimo and area in the Performing Arts BC festival each spring.

The Piano section will be adjudicated this year by Yvette Rowledge.

Yvette Rowledge studied piano in New Westminster under Audrey Mallinson. She graduated with distinction from the University of Victoria School of Music and holds diplomas from the Royal Conservatory of Music Toronto (ARCT, Performance), the Victoria Conservatory of Music (AVCM, Performance and Pedagogy), and Camosun College (Associate of Arts Diploma in music). Her tutors have included Dr. Robin Wood, Winifred Scott Wood, Dr. Gordana Lazarevich and Bruce Vogt.

Yvette is an active adjudicator at many music Festivals throughout Western Canada and is a member of the Canadian Music Festival Adjudicators’ Association and the BC Registered Music Teachers’ Association. She has taught all levels of music for 35 years and is a former faculty member of the Langley Community Music School, the Victoria Conservatory and the Douglas College Conservatory.

She has examined senior levels of piano for The London College of Music and Media (England). Yvette enjoys both leading and participating in Master Classes.
