PEEL MUSIC FESTIVAL
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
President’s Message
This year marks the 90th season of the Peel Music Festival and we’re still
going strong. Last year’s festival featured over 2,300 entries in Music
and Speech Arts, and we awarded $14,500 to our 150+ scholarship
winners. All of our winners performed in a minimum of two classes and
some performed in as many as five or six. We sent many competitors to
Provincials, some of whom advanced to compete in Nationals, where, in
recent years, our competitors have taken five First Place and two Second
Place awards.
The caliber of these young performers is exceptional, and to showcase
them accordingly, we host our annual Stars of the Festival Concert. This
season’s concert will be held on Saturday May 13th, 2017, at the Rose
Theatre in Brampton.
As one of the longest-running and largest independent teacher-run
competitive music festivals in Canada, we take great pride in the level of
excellence of our young competitors, many of whom we have watched
grow and develop over the years. We attract some of the best
adjudicators from across the country. Entry fees cover the cost of
adjudication, hall rentals and printing, while we count on scholarship
donors to provide ongoing scholarship award funds.
Teachers, however, are the backbone of our organization. We invite you
to become involved by volunteering your time, or by establishing a small
scholarship which would be awarded in your name. Some of our teachersupporters host their own Peel Music Festival scholarship recital at
which their students perform and the parents make small donations to
fund scholarships for the Festival. With your continued support we can
work together to ensure the success of the Peel Music Festival for many
years to come.
