THE 110TH EDMONTON KIWANIS MUSIC FESTIVAL INVITES YOU TO
HEAR THE STARS OF TOMORROW
This year marks the 110th Annual Edmonton Kiwanis Music Festival - Canada's first competitive music festival. Over 1,700 single and group entrants entered in over 1,000 classes will perform and compete from April 16 to April 30, 2018 at MacEwan University's Alberta College Campus (10050 MacDonald Drive), McDougall United Church (10025 101 Street), and the Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre (8426 Gateway Boulevard).
Choirs, bands, singers, pianists, guitarists, harpists, speech students, musical theatre performers, string players, woodwind players, and brass players will be showcasing, in a variety of classes, what they have learned this year. Some will be recommended to represent Edmonton at the Provincial Music Festival, and some will win Scholarships, but all will share their passion in their chosen discipline.
The Aboriginal Arts portion of the festival took place on February 20 and 21, 2018 at Ben Calf Robe School and featured performances in Aboriginal dance, Pow Wow drumming, Métis jigging, and Métis fiddling.
All events during the Festival are FREE to the public.
The Festival kicks off with a Gala on Sunday, April 15 at 2:30 PM at McDougall United Church (10025 101 Street) featuring performers of the various disciplines in the Festival. The Gala will be emceed by Paula Simons from the Edmonton Journal.
There are several classes in which scholarships will be awarded including some very Special Scholarships.
