1. In order to qualify for the festival general awards a student must enter at least 3 solo classes and place 1st, 2nd or 3rd in each class. Students top three marks are averaged to determine standings. An average of 85% and over is required to qualify for the awards. If a tie occurs, then the committee reviews the number of total solo classes and group classes each performer has participated in.
2. The Sudbury Music Festival is a member festival of the Ontario Music Festival Association. This means that students from Grade 6 and over can be nominated by the adjudicators to the Provincial Finals each year in Ontario. Adjudicators must have heard a performer at least two (2) times in order to nominate that performer.
Please note: All music performed at Provincials must be selections from the RCM or CC Syllabi.
3. Awards are presented at the Final Concert and Provincial nominees are notified immediately following the festival and announced publicly at the Final Concert (Stars of Excellence).
