2022 PETERBOROUGH KIWANIS MUSIC FESTIVAL

Award list has been posted under Awards

The festival was so pleased to be able to run an in person event this past March-April.

It was so thrilling to be able to enjoy performances and music strains through the venues.  I am sure our young musicians were also pleased to prepare their selections and have others experience the pleasure of listening. 
Many of our performers have been nominated to attend the OMFA Provincial virtual competition.  We will keep you updated on their results in June. 

 We are looking forward to being in person for spring of 2023 – see dates below
