OFFICIAL REGULATIONS and SYLLABUS
presented by
THE FEDERATION OF MUSIC FESTIVALS OF NOVA SCOTIA
for the 2020 NOVA SCOTIA PROVINCIAL MUSIC FESTIVAL

 

NEW FOR 2020!

Classes for Bands and Orchestras
The National Music Festival is now offering a recorded competition with classes for school and community bands and orchestras, so FMFNS has added them to our provincial syllabus.

Choral Classes
The National Music Festival is offering a revised selection of choral classes, including the addition of a Glee Choir, in their recorded competition. We have updated our syllabus to reflect these changes.

Senior Class Requirements
The National Music Festival has changed their repertoire requirements. There is now more freedom in repertoire choice with the expectation that a well-rounded recital will be presented. If you are interested in being recommended to the National Music Festival, please read the national syllabus carefully when planning your repertoire for local and provincial festival participation. https://www.fcmf.org/syllabus/ . Or particular note is that the maximum time allotted at the national competition level for Voice, Guitar, Brass and Musical Theatre has been reduced from 60 to 45 minutes.
