Music Festival 2018

The South Simcoe Arts Council Music Festival is an exciting opportunity for students to perform for, and receive positive feedback from, professional adjudicators in a non-competitive environment. As a member of the Ontario Music Festival Association, we have been able to recommend our top performing students to the Provincials where they have an opportunity to compete with students across Ontario!

We are excited to announce our Festival Awards for 2018. Please join us at the Spotlight on the ARTS Award presentating & Concert Gala on June 23. More details are Here on our Events Page
