General Information

The Oakville Vocal Arts Festival is an annual music festival that celebrates vocal excellence in both the voice and musical theatre genres. The focus of this festival is to highlight the educational experience and quality of performances by all the participants.

Some important notes for this year's Festival:

  • Accompaniment should be piano-only tracks (no orchestral tracks or tracks with backing vocals) or live, if the accompanist lives in-house.
  • Students will be given a specific day/time and Zoom link in advance.  They will perform in real time for the adjudicator and the other members of their class.
  • Registration closes on October 15, 2020.


The 2020 Festival will take place in November.  Exact times and dates will be determined after registration is closed, and will be posted on the website as soon as possible thereafter.


The voice syllabus for this year's festival contains a variety of classes from which students can choose.
