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.
