“Inspiring Musical Excellence”

Welcome to the Vancouver Kiwanis Music Festivals – dedicated to the encouragement, instruction and celebration of young musicians in Greater Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.

With an esteemed heritage dating back to the Knights of Pythias in 1923, and under the attentive stewardship of the Kiwanis Club of Vancouver since 1960, ours is now B.C.’s premier music festival, offering professional adjudication to some 7,500 students in high school bands and choirs, and in the private study of classical voice, music theatre, piano, strings, brass, woodwinds and chamber music. In recent years several solo instrument catetories have been added and include: classical guitar; harp and Chinese Ethnic instruments making ours a truly multi-cultural event. Especially gifted students can go on to compete at the Provincial and National levels.

In 2009, with continued support from the Vancouver Kiwanis Club, we became a separate Society. We also greatfully “acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia” for their award of a Community Gaming Grant.

We know helping to foster an appreciation for music, hard work and commitment in one child positively impacts not just their lives but the future of our community and our world. That’s why even when we hear a song sung a little off-key or a few missed notes — it’s all music to our ears.

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap, the being a force of nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
George Bernard Shaw
