This family-friendly festival brings together a variety of musical genres and provides a platform for local and international artists to connect with the community.

Supporting Local Talent

For a small city of its size, when researching concerts, I couldn’t believe the number of concerts going through Cranbrook; there were one or more concerts every month. Visitors should check out the Cranbrook tourism website to understand how much there is to do in this tiny community. More information can be found here.

When seeking out notable piano players from this city, I found none, but I stumbled upon Brooklynn Marie Proulx (a former Canadian actress) and Don Murdoch (a former Canadian professional hockey player).

While looking for private piano teachers in Cranbrook, I found this really well-done website. In this article, we shine a spotlight on Christine Wulf. It’s worth checking out.

Pausing our discussion of piano lessons for a moment, let’s delve into an exciting idea about recording and podcasting. How cool is this? The Cranbrook Public Library has a recording/podcasting studio for people to use.

I couldn’t leave this section of the article without shining a spotlight on the Mozart School of Music, this is just such a neat studio website I thought I should mention it.
