Celebrating 52 Years of Excellence

We are so Blessed with the talent we have in our community. The purpose of the Music Festival is to help young people develop their musical talent. A special thank you to the parents, teachers, family and friends who have continued to encourage and support them in their study of music during Covid-19.

In addition to providing each participant with individual feedback on their performance, the adjudicators provide "workshop" with many of the participants throughout the different categories.

We hope you all return! It's a pleasure to see many of the same students competing year after year and to watch their progress as they become more confident and take on more complex pieces.

The dates for our 52nd Music Festival have been set as:
April 4 to 8, 2022.

The students, music teachers, parents and volunteers are an integral part of a successful Festival. We invite your feedback on any area of the Festival that you think could be improved. Contact Us here anytime.

Thank you again for being a part of this wonderful experience.

John Chisholm, Chair
Quinte Rotary Music Festival 2022
