All levels Every person has a longing to be significant; to make a contribution; to be a part of something noble and purposeful. – John C. Maxwell

Each of us, like jigsaw pieces, has unique characteristics that inevitably fit nicely with a select few and when our individualities combine, we will collectively form a majestic picture. This year’s festival theme is Parts, as our students hold true to their artistic individuality, complementing each other and becoming a part of something bigger than what they as solo artistes can achieve.

In the process of doing so, they discover their rightful place in the grand scheme of things.
