Vanier hosts MusicFest Québec March 18 to 21, 2014
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 to Friday, March 21, 2014
09:00 to 17:00
<p>The Vanier Music Department will be welcoming over 5,300 elementary and high school students from across the province in this year&rsquo;s MusicFest Qu&eacute;bec.</p>
<p>Students from as far as Mont-Joli, Qu&eacute;bec, Gatineau, and Mont- Tremblant will be performing in 127 ensembles featuring symphony and chamber orchestras, concert bands, choirs and classical guitar ensembles. Seven of these ensembles will be representing such Anglophone schools as John Rennie, Westwood, Saint-Lambert and Lakeside Academy.</p>
<p>MusicFest Qu&eacute;bec was started by a group of music teachers who wanted to offer high school music students a unique music experience by bringing together thousands of young musicians from all over the province. Their idea was a competition where each ensemble competes against itself and not against other groups.</p>
<p>Generally each musical group performs a maximum of three pieces in front of two adjudicators and is evaluated according to the quality of their own performance and the given criteria in the evaluation form. After the performance one of the evaluators meets with each group in a workshop and comments on the technique, interpretation and attitude of the performance. At the end of the process the jury attributes the performing group with one of the following mentions: Gold, Silver, or Bronze, and the musical director of the group receives a certificate attesting the mention obtained.</p>
<p>MusicFest Qu&eacute;bec is open to the public. Performances take place in the Vanier Auditorium (A-103) and room A-250 and run every day from 9 am to 5 pm, except the first day when performances begin at 10 am.</p>
