MCM Festival April 15 – 24, 2016

Dear Music Teacher;

Once again, “Musical Celebration Musicale” is offering their 2016 music festival. This venue gives all music students the opportunity to perform, receive adjudication and perhaps a scholarship, regardless of their age or level. The Festival will take place this year from April 15th to 24th. . “Musical Celebration Musicale” is proud to be a member of the “Ontario Music Festival Association.” You will find our festival listed on their website along with a link to our own website, www.mcmfestival.ca.

Teachers are responsible for placing their students in appropriate grade levels. Also in the Piano categories, you will notice that Introductory is now referred to as Intro/Prep B to reflect the changes to the RCM Syllabus. Adults are welcome to participate if they are taking lessons and want to be a part of this festival experience. These changes reflect the awareness of the growing need for performance venues for everyone in the Eastern Ontario Region. As well, we include the Creative Choice Category which provides opportunities to students with instruments or styles that do not fall within any particular existing category. Please review the Guidelines and Syllabus carefully in order that your students do not miss out on any opportunity.

During the 2015 Festival, $10,238 in scholarships and financial assistance was provided to students with the help of many donors, both private and corporate. MCM remains committed to providing scholarships to students. We would appreciate contact information for any person or organization you think would help us.

Every attempt has been made to keep this event as open and accessible to as many students as possible. Everyone is welcome. If you know of someone teaching music in your area, please let them know about the MCM. This is a wonderful way to encourage your students to grow in performance, and to be more aware of the other students in the area that are also involved in music.

You are welcome to direct questions to any one of the members of “Musical Celebration Musicale” or contact the Registrar:
