Fresh BC Talent Quest - Summary of 10 Seasons
First I personally want to THANK All the Performers, Parents, Grand parents and community for your involvement with Fresh BC Talent Quest since 2012. As well to our AMAZING [local and area] sponsors. You're support made us the BEST talent show in the OK Valley. Visit our sponsors page
I could share many 'fun' stories starting with our first season to our 10th season. It's more FUN to go thro our web pages. Every Picture tells a story.
BEST part of FBCTQ was to watch the individual performers (ages 9 - 18) improve on their stage shows, vocals, music and most importantly, their confidence and personal grow each year. It was 'Unbelievable' - WOW!
Performers have grown and moved on as singer-songwriters, to recording, performing on the bigger stages and festival venues, to fulfilling their own personal goals and dreams as an artist or other: to attending respected music colleges, universities, to getting their music degree or Masters in education, nursing, and music etc. in their professional field. Congrats!
Their SUCCESS was their Commitment to their Goals at an early age. Their families, as well the FBCTQ 'family' is proud and honoured to have worked with such dedicated young artists since our first season. Good Luck to All !!
Local performers competed (annually) at our talent shows, to attending our performers music workshops, to performing at special music events, festivals, fund raisers and more. Awesome FUN!
Fresh BC Talent provided year round support and mentor ship and pride ourselves to providing professional workshops to our 'family' friendly talent competition, as well; providing 'live' performance opportunities.
Since SEASON 1 Fresh BC Talent promoted young talent to local venues which included: Fresh Healthy Cafe, Elite Rest, Beach Ice Cream, Tugs Tap House, Opus, Penticton Art Walk, Community Fund Raisers, Make-A-Wish, BC Winter Games, Blenz Coffee, Summerland Festival of Lights, Rib-fest, to the Penticton Peachfest.
Others shows and private events included: Mtn. Peachfest, Wrights RV Beach, Banbury RV, OK Falls, Summerlands Festival of Lights, G. Rega Festival, local Telethon, etc. to seasoned performers as opening acts.
FBCT music venues provided local performers an opportunity which is essential in their music training from: live (performance) outlets to provide all the tools in grooming their music and stage development. Important as well, personal skills in building stage confidence, to performing live 'on stage' shows presenting their music showcase for family, peers, & guests.
Thanks to local area performers supporting our music venues since 2012.

Here's what some have to say about Fresh BC Talent.
I had the pleasure of being involved in the 2020 Fresh BC Talent Quest as a solo act. Being on the stage and having to perform for a panel of judges allowed me to work on my skills as a performer, including working within time constraints, having a good stage presence, and becoming comfortable performing in front of large audiences!
Fresh BC Talent Quest was the first talent show I ever entered & won Season 1; piano being my strong suit and my first attempt at singing live. The feedback and workshops from many industry mentors was a huge asset and outstanding platform for young musicians to grow and learn, and I’m forever grateful for everything that I was taught—from performance to copyright.
