The 66th Annual Ottawa Kiwanis Music Festival opens today. It’s a month-long music festival held at ten locations across Ottawa with over 10,000 area music students competing. That’s a lot of music!

Students gain performing confidence and benefit from hearing others’ performances and the adjudicator’s comments. There are trophies and scholarships for the top performers.

Performances are open to the public. Admission fees for the regular competition sessions are $5 general, $3 students, and free for children under 12. Festival passes are $20. The schedule can be found here.

I’m proud of each of my students – I know they’ll do well.
