The Deloraine Border Festival presents an opportunity for students in southwest Manitoba to participate in a variety of artistic endeavours, a chance to perform, to learn and to enjoy.
Each spring, we listen and watch with joy and wonder as the artistic talent that blooms and grows in our communities is shared with others at our festival.
Thanks to all who make it happen.

The Deloraine Community will have a new piano teacher January of 2014
Jonathan Klassen is originally from Boissevain and currently completing a Bachelor Of Music (piano performance 4th year) degree at BU. He has toured throughout Italy, Iceland, and Cuba performing new music from Christopher Byman, Gary Kulesha, Brent Lee, Kjartaan Olafsoon and Jesse Plessis as well as visual artist Sigi Torinus.
In 2011 he attended the Casalmaggiore Internations Festival in Italy. He has recently traveled to Kenya, conducting children’s music choirs from Lighthouse Grace Academy. He is currently researching , collaborating and composing a project for culture, language and children’s music for the Brandon University New Music Ensemble. He has been teaching lessons in Brandon at Surridge’s Music.
Jonathan is very excited about the opportunity to come back to his local rural roots and offer lessons in the area. A student of Dale Whetter he has spoke to Dale about coming to the area to Deloraine to teach. He is willing to teach any age of music from Children to Adults and with the opportunity of having the afternoon’s off next semester would be willing to work with families to offer lessons at the school during class time. He has met with Tony Franklin to see about the piano at the school and to talk about the use of the music room at the school for his lessons. Outside of school hours he will continue to use this space for his lessons. He is excited about building up a base of students, being involved with our local Border Festival Of Arts program, and the community as a whole. He has committed to the next 5 years of being available for our area while his fiancee completes her music programming at the University.
