“The Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival (now in our 95th year) is delighted to return to the Federation of Canadian Music Festivals’ annual National Music Festival through the Local Stream Qualifying Round.  GVPAF has been sending performers to the National Music Festival for decades, with many of these performers earning accolades at the National Music Festival.  We are very pleased to be able to continue our association with FCMF.”

Federation of Canadian Music Festivals [FCMF] offers Local Music Festivals in non-affiliated provinces to affiliate directly with FCMF!

Affiliation through this Local Stream membership level provides an opportunity for currently ineligible students to participate in our new Local Stream Qualifying Round for the FCMF National Music Festival!

This virtual competition will be hosted by FCMF.  Students, if recommended by a local adjudicator, are eligible for participation to seek recommendation to the FCMF National Music Festival.

This membership category and Qualifying Round ensures that Canada’s young amateur musicians, from coast to coast to coast, are able to compete on a national stage.

For more information on how to become an affiliated local music festival, contact Barbara at info@fcmf.org
