Registration is now open for the 2021 Kingston Kiwanis Music Festival!   
2021 Quite Rotary Music Festival is currently POSTPONED.


Nov. 26, 2020 Update:

Registration is now open for the 2021 Kingston Kiwanis Music Festival!           
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our 48th annual Festival will be Virtual! This means that all entries must be submitted as a video recording via YouTube. Instructions for creating videos, uploading your video to YouTube, and completing registration can be found at:https://events.solarislive.com/Kingston-Kiwanis-Music-Festival

The deadline for uploading video performances to YouTube and completing registration is January 31, 2021.
Performers will be able to enter in any of the following categories: Brass, Guitar, Musical Theatre, Piano, Speech Arts, Strings, Voice, Woodwinds and Family Ensembles.  For safety reasons, Band, Choir, Orchestra, and non-family ensemble classes will not be offered.

All performers will receive written adjudications by email, awards will be presented, and adjudicators will recommend performers for the Highlights Concert and for Provincial Finals in levels 1 to ARCT.   

For the Virtual Highlights Concert performers will be recorded individually on stage at the Isabel Bader Cnetre.. The recordings will be edited to produce a Concert which will be premiered online in March.  We thank the Ballytobin Foundation for a grant that made this possible.                             

We are excited to offer this musical opportunity to amateur musicians in and around Kingston. Your support will help ensure a successful Kingston Kiwanis Music Festival in 2021.

Nov. 19, 2020 Update:

The QRMF organizing committee has decided, due to the Covid-19 virus, to postpone the Quinte Rotary Music Festival for 2021 to hopefully late November of 2021.  We will keep you up to date as to the time frame and wish everyone good health until this pandemic has passed.
