2021 Howe Sound Music Festival

× Info! The 2021 schedule is now posted! Please contact us at executivedirectorhsmf@gmail.com for any questions.

The Howe Sound Music Festival is held in Squamish, B.C. for students from Lions Bay to D'Arcy. This is an adjudicated workshop where students may be selected to represent our District at the Provincial level. The festival will run from Monday, March 15, 2021 - Saturday, March 20, 2021.


Music Teachers use the syllabus, which outlines the various classes that are offered to the students, to select repertoire and begin preparing students for the Festival.  This type of festival gives students studying private voice and piano an opportunity to workshop their pieces for the adjudicator and then receive verbal and written adjudication.  Students also receive a certificate giving them a Bronze, Silver or Gold placement. This type of festival provides encouragement and insight for students preparing for their Royal Conservatory Exams.


We are thrilled to welcome Alison Nystrom (Vocal Adjudicator) and Daniel Wardrope (Piano Adjudicator) to our festival!  Please see the 2021 Syllabus Addendum to learn more about our adjudicators.


The 2021 Syllabus is located under Rules and Regulations and the 2021 Addendum is located under Frequently Asked Questions.  Both of these sections are located on the right hand side of the home page.


We are produced by the Howe Sound Performing Arts Association and affiliated with the Performing Arts BC, Association of Regional Festivals.
