For six weeks in April and May, over nine thousand Victoria-area students of music, dance and dramatic arts are on stages throughout the city receiving adjudications from renowned experts in the arts.
Daily throughout the Festival, talented young people and adults perform in Brass, Classical Guitar, Choral, Composition, Dance (School and Studio), Ethnic Dance, Fiddle, Musical Theatre, Piano, School Bands, School Orchestras, Speech and Dramatic Arts, Strings, Voice and Woodwinds. Our Highlights concerts showcase this amazing talent. Dozens of significant awards and trophies are presented including the Rose Bowl (Classical Voice), the City of Victoria Medallion Tray (Piano), and the Roberto and Mary Wood Scholarship, the largest of its type in Canada.
The public is warmly invited to all adjudicated sessions and Highlights Concerts to support our performers and to enjoy the many outstanding performances.
