As a MusicFest Canada Affiliate, our adjudicators will issue an "Official Invitation to Perform" to exceptional concert bands and orchestras whose performance meets or exceeds the criteria established by MusicFest Canada. The Invitation will be valid for two MusicFest Canada Festivals.
Please use Music Fest Guidelines as we offer invites to this event so consistency in standards is important, which still allowing Director's flexibility in choosing repertoire that suits their needs. Please note that one Canadian selection is now required for MusicFest.
