**New** Effective 2024 Festival

You can now choose to enter all classes either competitively or non-competitively at our local Festival (with the exception of the Multi-Age/Multi-Level classes, which are always non-competitive and exclusive to the Morden Festival of the Arts.)  Both competitive and non-competitive entries in Provincial Classes are eligible for Provincial Recommendation by the Adjudicator. (Class number preceded by the letter "P" in the Provincial Syllabus).  Please use the checkbox on the entry form if you are entering non-competitive. Since these entries do not receive marks, they will not be eligible for Morden Festival of the Arts awards.  See Syllabus for complete Provincial Recommendation Eligibility.

 

AMAF Provincial Syllabus, 2023 Edition, Provincial Music and Arts Festival Regulations, Page iii - 1c 

"To be considered eligible, competitors in all solo classes must perform in two or more solo classes at the same grade/level/age group in the same discipline at the local festival. The recommendation must come from a Provincial Festival eligible class. All individuals and groups entering the local festival are eligible for recommendation to the Provincial Festival, whether competitive or non-competitive"

 

Effective 2023 Festival

If you would prefer to perform in a Multi-Age/Multi-Level Class for adjudication only (no marks will be given/not eligible for awards or Provincial recommendation), please choose one of the following classes:

Strings:  MS1000 Strings Multi-Age                    Piano:  MK1000 Piano Multi-Age

Vocal:  MV1000 Vocal Multi-Age                         Speech Arts:  MSA1000 Speech Arts Multi-Age

The Morden Festival of the Arts is a volunteer-based, registered charity which provides a venue for student performance and adjudication in Band, Strings, Piano, Vocal/Choral, French and English Speech Arts/Theatre Arts.

The Festival runs during the months of March and April each year.  The Highlights Concert is the finale of the Festival and showcases performances which have been recommended by the adjudicator of each discipline.

Registration for the Festival takes place in late January.  Piano, Strings and Vocal registrations are generally done through the students' private music teachers.  Registration forms are available on this website.  There is a small fee for each entry to help cover the cost of adjudicator fees, as well as other expenses incurred during the running of the Festival.

Announcements regarding Festival dates, locations and registration deadlines will appear in the local school newsletters, as well as in local newspapers and on this website.

A major goal of the Morden Festival of the Arts is to encourage high levels of participation.  As part of this encouragement, we try to keep our entry fees as low as possible.
