School of Music

The Festival and the School of Music have complementary objectives. The Festival encourages and gives public exposure to promising musicians, and undoubtedly many talented musicians are channeled into music careers because of the festival. The festival continues to encourage and support these students during their university years as well, and many of those enrolled at university have received encouragement from participating in music festivals.

Beside receiving helpful adjudications, performance experience and financial assistance through music festival participation, those who become music teachers and accompanists find that the festival is a strong influence in encouraging young people to become music students to share their love of music through performing for others.

The School of Music through its Director and Faculty are helpful to the Festival in many ways, not the least of which is in making available to the festival the magnificent facilities at the M.O. Morgan Building. For this, the festival is most grateful. For its part the festival is proud of its contribution to the school, for besides helping foster the training, most of its students at some time or other were festival competitors. Some have become teachers at the school and the School's first Director, Dr. Donald F. Cook is a distinguished alumnus of the Kiwanis Music Festival.
