The selection and availability of competent adjudicators is an
integral component of each Festival, and we have been very fortunate
over the years to obtain the services of some of the most qualified
musicians in all of the disciplines included in our programs.
For more than 50 years, over 300 adjudicators have been engaged to
officiate this Festival, coming from all over the British Isles and
In their assessment of each performer - often mixed with a good deal
of humor and camaraderie, - they offered sound advice and encouragement
to the countless thousands of young musicians who participated, which no
doubt encouraged each to pursue their love of music.
Often the adjudicators were greatly impressed by the depth and
caliber of the music scene in the Province and praised the teachers and
parents for their dedication to training and fostering the interest of
the young musicians.
