What's New for 2021

Each summer, we take stock of the previous Festival, review feedback provided by all our participants (volunteers, teachers, adjudicators, performers, etc.) and examine trends in music festivals around Ontario and Canada, in order to consider changes to the Festival rules and regulations and to the classes the Festival has on offer.

Here is a summary of new additions or alterations in this year’s Festival:

  • The Festival will be undertaken in a hybrid format, with standard classes offered virtually, and with live playoff sessions.

Further Updates

From time to time, the Festival will update the Syllabus after its initial publication. Please consult the Syllabus itself, along with the Syllabus updates, to keep abreast of any changes.


As part of our mission to improve the Festival each year, we are always happy to receive suggestions, comments, and criticisms, from teachers, parents and other professionals. We review all input in order to best determine whether and how it might be incorporated into either the Syllabus or the operation of the Festival.

Enjoy the Festival!
