On behalf of the Hamilton Music Festival committee, we are thrilled to re-introduce Hamilton to its very own music festival. Decades have passed since the city has enjoyed its presence.

Music festivals across the nation provide to their communities, the opportunity for all those who love music to perform in a friendly and competitive venue. Anyone can participate. Many of our participants come from private voice and piano studios in the area. Others may come from their music programmes in their schools. Church choir or neighbourhood karaoke club. The festival welcomes all. Unifying the talents of all ages, private studios and music programmes, builds a scaffold that anchors promise for our cultural authenticity.

We are so grateful for all of the support we have received from all venues, sponsors, adjudicators, music professionals and the City of Hamilton for recognizing our venture as a valuable contribution to its cultural foundation.

We, the committee, will continue to develop this annual event to include choral, strings, brass, woodwinds, composition, contemporary works and speech arts. Please keep in touch with us. Give us your feedback and ideas for future festivals by emailing us at: hamiltonmusicfestival@gmail.com

Welcome to your Music Festival, Hamilton!
