Help us change lives!

The Vancouver Kiwanis Music Festivals’ past, present and future are rooted in a common purpose: to inspire musical excellence. Through the Jazz, Concert Band & Orchestra, Choral and Main Festival competitions, the festivals offer Metro Vancouver’s youth life-changing experiences and cultivate personal development.

Festival registration fees cover just over half of the operating costs.

Your support will ensure that annually:

  • over 7000 Metro Vancouver music students have access to BC’s premier amateur music festival;
  • the finest adjudicators can be hired;
  • the most appropriate performance spaces are made available;
  • music education will be encouraged and supported; and
  • our Festival’s mandate of Inspiring Musical Excellence will continue.

What People Are Saying

"Being a piano player, teacher and avid music listener, I hope to engage in a career that involves guiding others and helping youth find and pursue their passions in life in the fine arts sector. Your scholarship will help further my musical journey and I am grateful to have received this award."

"“Music is an essential part of everything we do. Like puppetry, music has an abstract quality which speaks to a worldwide audience in a wonderful way that nourishes the soul.” "
