Celebrating the Music of John Denver

An outstanding concert of great music, created by Canadian recording artist and producer Rick Worrall, and John’s longtime friend and arranger/conductor Mr. Lee Holdridge, this production honours the incredible legacy of songs John left us. Not a dress up like John show, but rather a production that stays true to the original arrangements as first created by Lee Holdridge, John’s arranger/conductor.

Join Rick and his brother Steve Worrall, also a Canadian recording artist who toured with Tom Cochrane and more, an Allstar Canadian band comprised of some of the best musicians in the country and an ensemble of players from symphonies across Canada.

Here’s what the critics say….
For the Love of John Denver….Amazing”!! ~ Calgary Herald
An absolute must see”! ~ Martin Kull GM Centennial Concert Hall Winnipeg
Rocky Mountain High spectacular evening of great music…Every tribute show should be like this one”!!! ~ The Daily Courier

Sing along to your favourite hits including Rocky Mountain High, Sunshine on My Shoulders, and of course Take Me Home Country Roads.
A great show for all ages…isn’t it time your kids and grandkids learned what “FAR OUT!” was all about???

Provincial Festival a Big Success

Fort St. John hosted a very successful Provincial Festival from June 2nd to 6th. More than 500 young performing artists along with their families visited our city and impressed us with their amazing ability in music, dance and speech arts. Performances and technique classes took place in 11 different venues around the community and the festival featured three concerts that were very well attended with enthusiastic audiences enjoying the top performances of the week.

Big thank-you to the following venues that opened their doors to our young performers and were helpful and supportive throughout the festival: The North Peace Cultural Centre, Evangel Downtown, Alliance Church, Presbyterian Church, Calvary Baptist Church, Peace Lutheran Church, Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints, Evangelical Mission, Northern Lights College, Studio 2 Stage Dance Academy and Alchemy Dance Collective.

The festival would not have been possible without a small army of volunteers who gave up their time to work at the venues and at registration and did the work to organize the event over the last year. Their support for the arts and the community is very much appreciated.

Thank-you as well to the festival sponsors. Without them, none of this would have been possible.

Many businesses welcomed our visitors with special offers and discounts to festival delegates and their families.
