2022 Festival Announcements
LETTER FROM THE COORDINATOR
Dear Kitchener-Waterloo Music Community,
I am the newly appointed KWKMF Coordinator, Danielle Beck, and it is my pleasure to take the reins from Heidi Wall who has done a wonderful job of organizing this festival for the past several years. It has been a challenging couple of years for music programs everywhere, but I'm amazed to see all the ways in which our community has guided students to overcome these challenges.
The 2022 Festival took place in April in virtual format, and it was so wonderful to see the continuing commitment from our community. Students, teachers and parents attended their classes via Zoom, where they were able to enjoy the video performances of other participants and engage in conversational feedback with our dedicated adjudicators. We were excited to present a Live Finale Concert, and many of our students went on to represent Kitchener-Waterloo at the OMFA Provincials. In my first year as Coordinator I'm so pleased with the success of our virtual festival!
And for the 2023 festival season we very much look forward to returning to our live format. So music students....keep up the hard work in your lessons this coming year, and get ready to perform in person at next year's KW Kiwanis Music Festival!
The following are the *Tentative dates for next year's festival:
December 1st 2022 - Registration Opens
