Welcome to the Kiwanis Music Festival of Guelph

The Kiwanis Music Festival of Guelph took place completely online this year and nearly 500 young musicians participated!  We did everything we could to make the virtual experience as educational and rewarding as possible.

  • 9 amazing adjudicators provided detailed written commentary for each performance
  • all participants had the opportunity to listen to the performances of other students in each of their classes
  • 52 performers took part in 9 masterclasses along with many teachers, family members, and other students
  • 50 participants were nominated to represent Guelph and compete at the OMFA Provincial Finals
  • 90 entrants were designated to receive $8,000 in scholarships
  • all adjudications, certificates, ribbons, scholarship cheques, and medals were sent to participants in the mail

The Virtual Highlights of the Festival Concert & Awards Ceremony was a stunning production that was shared with over 2,000 people.  Please contact the Festival if you would like to receive the video URL.

Thank you to everyone who chose to participate in the Virtual Festival this year!  We hope you all stay safe and happy this summer and we look forward to seeing you all in person at next year's Festival!
