Following is important information regarding the 2021 Festival.
New for 2021! We are pleased to announce the addition of a World Instruments syllabus. Presently featuring a selection of classes for a variety of Chinese instruments, we hope to expand our offerings of classes for instruments from around the world in the years to come.
The 2021 Festival will be undertaken by means of video submissions.
The Festival reserves the right to make any necessary changes as warranted.
Please be sure to check for any revisions to the syllabus.

Due to the current public health measures enacted to prevent or contain the spread of COVID-19, the uncertainty regarding the upcoming school year, and the long lead times required for Festival arrangements, the Bands discipline will not be undertaken for the 2021 Festival.
As the Provincial Festival currently does not include chamber music classes at this time, and as this discipline consisted solely of classes intended to feed into the Provincial Festival, the Chamber Music discipline will not be undertaken for the 2021 Festival. (This may be subject to change depending on revisions to the Provincial syllabus.)
Due to the current public health measures enacted to prevent or contain the spread of COVID-19, the uncertainty regarding the upcoming school year, and the long lead times required for Festival arrangements, the Choirs discipline will not be undertaken for the 2021 Festival.

N.B. Ensemble classes will be scheduled among classes of other disciplines, and overseen by the adjudicators of those disciplines, as best fits the make-up of participating ensembles in those classes.
Updated! The Festival is reinstating classes for string orchestras to participate in the 2021 Virtual Festival.
