Any Canadian music may be entered though we encourage exploration of music including contemporary idioms.
Repertoire suggestions are available on the ACNMP syllabus.
Volunteers are always needed to help run our festival, mostly as secretaries and hall monitors. If you would consider assisting Contemporary Showcase Edmonton in this way, please contact our
Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com.
Teachers are welcome to be secretaries during their students' performances with the understanding they will not indicate to the adjudicator any connection with the student. We thank you in advance for your assistance!!
