About Schedule Register Package Adjudicators Fees Guest Performances

The Edmonton Cantando Festival is celebrating its 19th season in the Winspear Centre for Music. Updates regarding all aspects of the festival will be added on an ongoing basis. Check the “Schedule” tab to determine a time that works best for you. Don’t forget that band performances occur on one day and the band workshops on the following day. Choir performances occur in the morning with workshops in the afternoon and jazz performances are immediately followed by workshops. Venues for the various events will also be updated however all band performances and evening concerts will occur in the Winspear except for a separate choral event on the first day of the festival. To register for the festival, click the “Register” tab and scroll through the various options – be sure to check the “Fees” tab as well so you are aware of all costs. The “Package” tab will be updated in the late fall and gives very specific information about all aspects of the festival. It is very important to read this carefully so you can plan all aspects of your trip to Edmonton. The “Adjudicators” tab will be updated throughout the fall but will include bios of adjudicators selected for the festival. The “Program” tab includes information on the evening concerts including guest ensembles and soloists and in some cases, the specific program they will be performing. Please note – we have expanded performance opportunities for Concert Bands to include the morning of Tuesday, April 17.  Groups performing then will have their Adjudication Workshop on the afternoon of Tuesday – ie. NOT on the following day
