FESTIVAL ARCHIVES

 

The Kitchener-Waterloo Kiwanis Music Festival was established in 1948 by the Kiwanis Club of Kitchener-Waterloo - a service club known for its service contribution's such as "Meals on Wheels". A committee of members of the Kiwanis Club of Kitchener Waterloo and members of the community serve on the festival board. The Kitchener-Waterloo Kiwanis Music Festival is an annual music education event that features over 700 school groups and private music student performances. This event brings the community of Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding cities together in celebration of youth achievement in music. Adjudicators give participants valuable verbal and written feedback, ribbons and seals of standard in competitive classes, and participant ribbons in non-competitive classes. All participants are eligible to win trophies, financial awards, and provincial nominations at the discretion of the adjudicators. We even have a concerto competition where participants get to perform with a live orchestra! The festival culminates in a widely popular finale concert which features performances and the awarding of top prizes. The aim is to support and inspire our youth in their musical ambitions and skill development. Get in touch to see how you can be involved today!
