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.

- 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.
