Coffeehouse night in Edgewater

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Steamboat Mountain Music Society (SMMS) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, November 16

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Steamboat Mountain Music Society (SMMS) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, November 16 at the Edgewater Hall.

The AGM will be a coffeehouse event with live local music and dessert, as well as reports on the 2012 festival, initial plans for the 2013 festival, and an election of directors. Included in reports will be an announcement about the awarding of the SMMS bursary. Incorporating music into an AGM is only natural for a non-profit society whose main purpose is to promote Columbia Valley music.

Performers who would like to be included in the musical parts of the AGM evening are asked to contact Larry Newman at 250-270-0042.

Individuals or groups who would like to audition for the 2013 Steamboat Mountain Music Festival are asked to set up a time with Larry Newman, drop off CDs to Larry, or bring them the meeting.

All local musicians and groups are invited to audition for the second annual festival which has been tentatively scheduled for next July 5 to 6 in Edgewater.
