After a unique festival season, we want to thank all our hard working committee members, volunteers and donors who make this all possible.

We put all this hard work into our festival to celebrate the wonderful talent in Southeastern Manitoba.  We believe this gives the performers opportunities to better themselves at their craft, and perhaps to be a performer, teacher or adjudicator someday.

We, at SEMF, applaud the hard work each of our performers puts into practicing, learning, and performing. Our community is richer for it.
