Oktubafest offers music, food and fun

Westman residents are invited to journey to the International Peace Garden for an exciting event this weekend.

It’s the second annual “Oktubafest”, scheduled to begin Friday evening and conclude on Sunday afternoon.

Music, food and fun are on tap during the three-day event, and many special programs will be offered to the public.

On Friday night a recital by professional euphonium artist Jason Ham of West Point, New York and tubist Marty Erickson of Appleton, Wisconsin will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Burdick Center for the Performing Arts at the International Music Camp.

The public is welcome, and a small admission will be charged at the door.

From 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. in the International Peace Garden Interpretive Centre festival organizers will be serving a “German-style” meal, also open to the public.

Performances and workshops for tuba and euphonium players will be the focus of the weekend at the music camp. High school and college musicians and teachers, as well as adult amateur musicians, are invited to participate in the learning and performing events at the camp.

Master classes, repertoire sessions and a massed tuba-euphonium choir will take place Friday night through Sunday.

On Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Burdick Center, the International Tuba Quartet and the massed tuba-euphonium choir will perform in concert with Ham and Erickson, and will feature the world premiere of a composition by Christopher Gable commissioned especially for Oktubafest.

Again, a small admission will be charged at the door.

Preceding the concert on Saturday, there will be Bavarian-themed foods available to enjoy in the Interpretive Centre from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Why not enjoy some “sauerbraten” and then take in the concert?

Oktubafest participants will also offer a tuba Sunday morning worship service at 11 a.m. in the Burdick Centre.

The weekend’s activities are being presented by the International Music Camp and the International Peace Garden.

Celebrate the fall colours and join us for these two exciting concerts and some great food at Oktubafest 2013.
