Thank you to everyone who entered the 2021 OMFA Provincial Finals!  We had over 1700 registrations this year – an amazing testament that music is continuing to thrive in our Province!

So what happens next?
• After compiling and sorting everything – the videos have been sent to our esteemed panel of adjudicators.
• As results start to come in they will be uploaded onto the website under “Results” as well as on our facebook page.
• Once everything has been received we will start to send out your adjudication sheets and certificates via email (please note: this could take until June 30th).
• Scholarship winners will be decided upon by the Adjudicators.  Competitors will be informed that they have won a scholarship (please do not write and ask!) and will be asked to send a thank you letter.  Once the hand-written thank you letter has been mailed to the Festival Office and received, cheques will be issued.
• Private YouTube channels will be established for each grade/level so that the competitors can hear and share their performances. These links will be shared with the competitors only.

Congratulations to all of the competitors, teachers, parents and accompanists for helping to make this year’s Virtual Provincials such a huge success.
