Our annual Music Festival is a a competition for accordion and for piano students that are members of the AAC.   Every year, we organize classes and arrange for an adjudicator to come and judge the hard work and talent of our various levels and ages of competitors.

Competition classes usually start at around 9 am, and continue until 4 or 5 o'clock.  In the evening of Saturday June 22, we will host our GALA event, which is open to the public, and all ensemble categories will perform and be adjudicated at this time.

Please download, print, and hand in your entry form along with your entry fee, to Maureen Jarosh at 403-253-0830.

Mail or bring your cheques ( to AAC) or cash to 32 Armstrong Cres. SE, Calgary, Alberta T2J 0X0

THESE numbers ARE BASED ON FESTIVAL 2018 and will be updated soon.  We fundraised at the A la Carte event, and that determines our festival scholarships and awards.
