2020 Registration has been CANCELLED


Mar. 15, 2020 Update:

The QRMF organizing committee is very disappointed to have to cancel this year's festival, due to national and provincial health concerns and advisories regarding the spread of the Corona Virus. The concert on April 19 is also cancelled. We will look forward to being back in 2021, and wish everyone good health in the next few weeks and months, until this pandemic has passed.
Arrangements for refunds of fees paid will be made within the next 2-3 weeks.
 Thanks to all the volunteers and adjudicators who have committed to the 2020 event.
We will be back in 2021!

Celebrating 52 Years of Excellence
Welcome to the 52nd annual Quinte Rotary Music Festival, being held April 20 - 24, 2020. We are very much looking forward to your participation and the continued success of this long-standing event.

A partnership between the Rotary Clubs of Belleville, Trenton and Quinte Sunrise makes it possible for this festival to move forward each year. We are proud of this opportunity to create a platform to showcase the musical talents of the youth in our community.

The passion, dedication and commitment of the participants are clearly evident in the excellence of their performance. It is most encouraging to see the active participation each year of the students and their families. It is a testimony to the importance of music in the lives of our young people. It is their interest and involvement that makes for the continued success of this festival.

We have developed this website to allow participants to register and pay online. A “Hall of Fame” page will highlight the accomplishments or our young people and will be accessible worldwide for the benefit of the family outside the community.

Participants and music teachers are requested to note the changes in the rules and the deadline date of February 1st for registration this year. We also request that you keep open the dates for the Silver Trophy Competitions (Friday, April 24) and the Concert of Stars (Wednesday, May 6), as you may be invited to perform in these.

We also wish to invite you to attend a special “Musical Gifts” concert at Bridge Street United Church on Sunday, April 19, 2020 at 2:00 p.m., a fund raiser for the awards for QRMF and Bridge Street Church’s Musical Arts program. Participants will be local music teachers, past prize winners from the QRMF, local choral groups and BSUC musicians, and special guest, Dr. John Burge, our piano adjudicator for 2020. A free will offering is the price of admission to what promises to be a delightful afternoon of music.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s festival.

John Chisholm, Chair
Quinte Rotary Music Festival 2020
