The Federation of Music Festivals of Nova Scotia coordinates and supports the work of seven local, competitive music festivals for young amateur musicians.

Annually, the Federation arranges a Provincial Music Festival that provides three levels of live solo competitions for piano, voice, strings, guitar, woodwinds, brass and musical theatre. There are also competitions for small/chamber groups.  The Federation also arranges a virtual festival for composers, bands, orchestras and choral groups.

Competitions at the local level lead to competitions at the provincial level which, in turn lead to a National Music Festival. We encourage the exploration of music of all types, including Canadian and Indigenous works.
