Peel Music Festival:

Next Festival Dates: March and April

Peel Music Festival continues to be one of Canada's largest independent annual music festivals. Begun in 1927 in Brampton by W. E. Capps, a local elementary school music teacher, the scope of the Festival has grown substantially in the ensuing years. In addition to offering competitive adjudication of the highest professional standard to young performers on a variety of instruments including brass, woodwinds, strings, classical guitar, and piano, the Festival also offers classes for choirs, ensembles and for solo performers in voice, musical theatre and speech arts. Peel Music Festival is a not-for-profit organization, run by a group of dedicated volunteers. Feel free to browse this site and learn more about the Festival.

Burlington Fall Festival:

Next Festival Dates: October 20 to November 10, 2018

The Rotary Burlington Music Festival is a fun event which runs annually. It is both a competition and an opportunity for music and speech arts students to perform before appreciative audiences. There is a two-week-long series of competitions in various classes of music and speech arts, held in friendly venues in Burlington. Students pay a registration fee for each class they enter. Classes run Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. We engage the most experienced and talented adjudicators from across Canada to listen to the competitions each day. After their individual performances, students receive written assessments and marks as well as a verbal analysis of their work. The opportunity of exposure to expert critiques and advice from such adjudicators is the main reason many students enter the festival.
