Fostering Shuswap Musicians

*The purpose of the Shuswap Music Festival is to encourage, support, challenge and celebrate music students and amateur musicians by providing opportunities for learning and performing on the road to musical excellence.

In addition, the Festival provides the opportunity for constructive and professional evaluations of musical performances.

The Festival is produced by a not-for-profit society managed by a volunteer board of directors.


Congratulations to all participants! Despite the Pandemic, the 20th Shuswap Music Festival received 178 entries from talented young musicians. Bands performed and were adjudicated  at the schools. Entries for Junior and Senior Piano, Strings and Vocal  were recorded and uploaded to YouTube for online adjudication. These performances are now available for viewing. The winners of festival awards and scholarships are also listed. Our sincere appreciation to all who made this festival a success.
