Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When is the Music Festival in 2017?

The disciplines will compete from April 3-13, 2017.

Q:  What is a syllabus?

A:  Our syllabus is a complete list of classes and class codes used to categorize each competitor's performance.

Q:  How do I pay?

A: You may pay by Visa or Master Card. An entry can not be processed by our software without payment online. For those requiring approval of their registration before payment, the details can be printed. Simply sign back into your account and complete the payment process after approval. Cheques are no longer being accepted.

Q:  Why do entries have to be in by February when the festival does not run until April?

A:  Once the festival receives all entries, they are then downloaded into a calendar program. Classes must be assigned to adjudicators and venues. Classes are also adjusted to allow for band set up time, costume changes etc. Once the classes are set, the festival program must be set up for printing. As a volunteer organization, time is necessary to be able to complete the work.

Q:  Can I request to compete on a certain day during the festival?

A:  Requests for performing on a certain day, unfortunately, can not be accommodated. With the large number of participants at our festival, one person's request may be another person's conflict. Our online program detects any solo/duet/trio competitor conflicts between venues and needed travel time as well. That should not be an issue for a competitor. Knowing our festival dates in April are known in advance, we hope you are able to adjust your schedule to join in the fun.
