Festival Information
The Quinte Rotary Music Festival Committee extends a warm welcome to the participants of our Annual Music Festival, their families and friends.

Since the festival's inception in 1968, we have had the privilege of welcoming over 20,000 talented musicians to this competition, some of whom have made music their careers. The talent in the Quinte area is exceptional and we take pride in playing an important part by offering this opportunity to the musicians.

Celebrating 49 Years of Excellence
Congratulations to all the participants last year and a special thank you to the parents, teachers, family and friends who encourage and support them in their study of music.

We are so Blessed with the talent we have in our community. The purpose of the Music Festival is to help young people develop their musical talent. We experienced that last year.

In addition to providing each participant with individual feedback on their performance, the adjudicators were able to "workshop" with many of the participants throughout the different categories.

It's a pleasure to see many of the same students competing year after year and to watch their progress as they become more confident and take on more complex pieces.

The dates for our 49th Music Festival have been set as: April 3 to 7, 2017.

The students, music teachers, parents and volunteers are an integral part of a successful Festival. We invite your feedback on any area of the Festival that you think could be improved.
