RCM Announces new FESTIVAL

This just in from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto:

It is with great excitement that we announce the 2010 Royal Conservatory School Festival, to be held at the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning!

The Royal Conservatory School Festival provides music students of all ages and levels the opportunity to perform in both non-competitive and competitive environments, receiving constructive positive feedback and performance evaluations from highly qualified music teachers of the RCM community. We welcome students from any studio or school to participate in this festival.

Sunday, March 28th: Non-Competitive Festival: An opportunity for students to perform in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with no placements. Classes are available for all ages and levels. Also included in the non-competitive festival are classes for ensembles, where groups of differing styles and levels will have the chance to perform, receive feedback, and have an opportunity to hear other peer groups play.

Sunday April 11th & Sunday April 25th: Competitive Festival: Two days of classes will be held, during which time participants will have the chance to be awarded a Festival Prize at differing levels, which can be put towards study at the Royal Conservatory School for supplemental classes such as theory, world music classes and small and large ensemble opportunities.

Saturday May 8th: Royal Conservatory School Festival Gala: A selection of participants from both the non-competitive and competitive festival days shall be invited to perform at the first annual gala concert, to be held in the newly built Koerner Hall. All festival participants achieving bronze, silver, or gold levels in the festival will be awarded their prizes during the gala as well.
*All festival classes and the final gala concert are open to the general public.*
