DATES for 2017: April 5th-8th
FEES for 2017: $325 per choir (plus $5 admin fees at time of registration)
The format for festival: three choirs warm up in different rooms, perform back to back in the sanctuary, then proceed to separate clinic rooms for a 30 minute workshop with an adjudicator.
You are free to choose whatever repertoire you want and are not required to submit your choices in advance; however, we are not a festival for musical theatre or show choirs.
We recommend choirs to the Performing Arts BC Festival, guidelines are below and there are some requirments that affect repertoire choices for the provincial festival.
The festival also offers MusicFest invites. As a MusicFest Canada Affiliate, our adjudicators will issue an "Official Invitation to Perform" to exceptional choirs whose performance meets or exceeds the criteria established by MusicFest Canada. The Invitation will be valid for two MusicFest Canada Festivals.
