Academy Music Festival 2018

It's Festival season at the Academy, and you can tell! There's a happy buzz around the building as students and teachers select songs and begin diving into preparations.
We will once again be hosting the Saskatoon Academy of Music Festival from May 28th - June 2nd, inclusive.  The festival is a great opportunity for students to enjoy friendly competition, gain familiarity with public performance, benefit from the knowledge and expertise of the adjudicators that we bring in, and meet fellow musicians their age. Due to our overwhelming success last year, we will once again be hosting the Festival in-house at the Academy!
Festival will run as our school recitals do; lesson fees for the week will cover students for one class entry. Those who are not participating in Festival will receive a lesson at an alternate time/date as determined between the student and the teacher (no lessons will be running during Festival week in order to provide a quiet environment for our participants).  Students wishing to enter festival will pay a $10.00 admin fee (this covers awards, adjudicator pay and per diems, and other staffing/admin hours), and receive one class entry as part of their lesson fees. Students wishing to enter more than one class can do so by paying an additional class fee of $23 per class entered. (Students who do hour long lessons are entitled to two class entries).
All instruments are welcome to compete, as well as duets, trios, and groups. Entry forms (on reverse) are due no later than Friday, March 23rd, along with the admin entry fee of $10.00, and any additional class fees. Please note that this fee is NON-REFUNDABLE, as festival costs and adjudicator hours are calculated based on the number of entrants in April. 
Admission will be $3.00 general, or $5.00 for the full week; children and participants are free. Parking will be available around the building, though it may be congested during other business' daytime hours, so please plan to arrive early. 
We will be hosting an Academy Family Reception and all-ages show in conjunction with the festival awards on the evening of Saturday, June 2nd. There will be live music, awards, socializing, and dainties. More information will be available closer to the festival! 
We will have the festival schedule available after the Easter break in April. 
Thank-you for supporting our festival, and we hope to hear many of you perform!
