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 North America.

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.
