Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Cranbrook Arts Council
It’s Our Anniversary! Cranbrook & District Arts Council (CDAC) is kicking off their 40th Anniversary with a celebration of the arts. Allow us to entertain you across all the artistic disciplines for an evening of pure cultural celebration. The celebration will be held on Friday, May 17th at 7 PM in the Ktunaxa Gymnasium 220 Cranbrook Street.
The varied line up ranges from Daze of Grace, a local folk-rock band, and Bud Abbot’s comic storytelling, to the lively performances of the Anadil dancers and Leather Britches, Celtic band. Several individual performances include Scott Buxton, a well regarded woodwind instrument performer, who also makes bamboo flutes of all shapes and sizes, and local music teachers Lorraine Butler and Ellen Bailey performing a duet. Additionally we are excited to announce that students of the Fine Arts programme at the College of the Rockies will also be contributing, in the way of a pop-up gallery, along with many other exciting acts and performers, so the evening promises to tickle all your cultural fancies.
Louise Selby, Treasurer CDAC, proudly states “I am excited about the quality and variety of the local artist that are being showcased” Selby says this is a great opportunity for the public to witness the revelation of the Cranbrook and District Arts Council’s “exciting new community project”. So make sure you attend to discover what all the fuss is about.
