April 15th - 17th, 2016
Since its founding in 1982, CISMF has outgrown the more intimate confines of Massey Hall and now requires all the resources of Roy Thomson Hall to accommodate the more than 1400 students participating in one of three choirs (Junior, Intermediate, Senior) or five instrumental ensembles (Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra, Jazz Orchestra).
This Festival is a remarkable opportunity for students and music educators to collaborate in a non-competitive atmosphere that fosters a high-level of musicianship and artistic expression. The choristers are selected by their school directors, and the instrumentalists participatein an audition process adjudicated by CIS music educators. The repertoire is prepared in advance, and the performance comes together over the course of rigorous rehearsal days. The experience proves to be a challenging and rewarding one for all participants.
Tickets will go on Sale February 12th, 2016!
