The Rotary Club welcomed Josie Hoffarth and her parents to our meeting this evening, and enjoyed a performance of "3 Preludes" by G. Gershwin. Josie was the winner of the 2021 Rotary Rosebowl, a unique competition in that the entire Festival was put on virtually and the Rosebowl was performed without an audience and judging was done remotely.  Josie was introduced by the President of the Music Festival Society, Milan Vujovic who described Josie as a "force", driven and determined.  She is passionate about music and dance, as well as being a golf and silver medalist at her studies.
"Sitting still" is not in her vocabulary and she will begin a degree in Arts at the Medicine Hat College in the fall.
Josie finished by thanking everyone in the Rotary Club for the opportunity to perform, for the operation of the Music Festival over the past 65 years and for finding a way to have the Festival during this pandemic.
