Welcome to the
Kitchener-Waterloo Kiwanis Music Festival



The Kitchener-Waterloo Kiwanis Music Festival

The Kitchener-Waterloo Kiwanis Music Festival is an annual music education event that features over 700 school groups and private music student performances. This event brings the community of Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding cities together in celebration of youth achievement in music. Adjudicators give participants valuable verbal and written feedback, ribbons in competitive classes, and seals of standard. All participants are eligible to win trophies, financial awards, and provincial nominations at the discretion of the adjudicators. We even have a concerto competition where participants can win the opportunity perform with a live orchestra! The event culminates in a widely popular finale concert which features performances and the awarding of top prizes.

The Objectives of Kiwanis International 

To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material things of life. To encourage the daily living of The Golden Rule in all human relationships. To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards. To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship. To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render great service, and to build better communities. To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism, which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
