Dear participants in the Live 2021 Kitchener-Waterloo Kiwanis Music Festival,

The festival website is the official means of communicating announcements. All official news is first posted on the website, and then distributed by other means. This email is a notification.

In response to the Ontario lockdown (LINK), the festival committee has decided to cancel the Live Festival.

Please take some to consult with your music teacher or myself, and then let me know at your earliest convenience how you would like your registration to be processed. Here are your three options.

  1. Receive a refund
  2. Donate your fee
  3. Pivot your registration into a "live-turned-virtual" music festival

Live-Turned-Virtual Festival Facts

  • The live-turned-virtual festival will follow the same format as the virtual festival
  • The deadline to submit your YouTube video for live-turned-virtual festival will be Wednesday, April 21 by 7:00 PM
  • Participants in the live-turned-virtual festival will not compete in the same classes as those in the virtual festival
