Updated statement from OMFA re COVID-19

The Ontario Music Festival Association executive has made the difficult decision today to announce the cancellation of the live 2020 Provincial Finals in Niagara due to the current global COVID-19 outbreak.

WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE that we are in the planning stages of a VIRTUAL PROVINCIAL MUSIC COMPETITION to be held in June 2020. This will be for those competitors who have already been recommended from completed festivals and as well, we will be expanding the grade and age levels for all disciplines and opening up the competition to any young musicians who wish to enter from across Ontario.

Please visit www.omfa.ca for more information re rules and regulations, syllabus requirements, new entry fees, deadlines, details re uploading, etc. to enter. Due to physical distancing, only solo classes will be allowed to enter – there will not be any community choir classes, chamber classes or piano concerto classes for 2020.

We appreciate your support, understanding and hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
