Classes are offered for solo performances in each of Grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and
Diploma Conservatory levels for the following classes:

    • Voice
    • Piano
    • Strings
    • Woodwinds
    • Brass
    • Guitar

Conservatory levels are determined by the current Syllabi of either the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto) or Conservatory Canada/Western Ontario Conservatory of Music (London).
All repertoire must be found in the syllabi of at least one of these Conservatories.
A local festival may designate a maximum of TWO competitors in each discipline at each grade level.

This competition is designed to allow students at a slightly more junior level the chance to meet and compete with performers at their own stage of musical development, to be adjudicated by international level adjudicators and to be winners in this level.

Graded performers are to prepare TWO contrasting pieces.
Singers must perform THREE pieces and in TWO languages (e.g., English and French).
Maximum performance time is 20 minutes.
