We are so excited to announce that Beckettfest will be held this Spring, 2022!

Beckettfest is an annual non-competitive performance event where students perform prepared repertoire in small groups with peers at a similar music level and instrument-specific area for an adjudicator, who then gives brief comments and performance suggestions to each student. This is a celebration of learning and musical growth event and is a positive, fun experience and a great opportunity to perform for a small, supportive group.

To ensure the safety of our students, classes will be kept very small and the festival will be spread out over three different days to provide as many different small group classes as possible. The schedule is as follows:

Date Instruments Location
March 26, 2022 piano; voice; winds; brass 54 Benton Street, Kitchener
April 9, 2022 piano; guitar 190 Lester Street, Waterloo
April 10, 2022 strings (violin, viola, cello) 190 Lester Street, Waterloo
