The East York Music Festival began in 2009 as a performance opportunity for students at Lippert Music Centre Inc. Since then, it has blossomed into a local music festival open to musicians of any age and level with a wide variety of instrument and voice classes. Our mandate is to provide a comfortable and educational performance experience for the performer with professional adjudication from qualified and experienced musicians. 

Our approach of rewarding all performers with ribbons based on their achievement by mark is essential in establishing that their performance is welcome, valued and appreciated. We downplay the idea of "competition" as we feel performance is a personal goal for each participant, but we do offer distinction for the top 3 marks in each category respectively. Furthermore, performers enrolled in two classes within the same instrument are eligible for scholarships from our many sponsors, and all participants are eligible for our various prizes and giveaways. Music, and therefore adjudication, is subjective by nature. Even though we may perform to the best of our ability, it is important to remember that, regardless of the outcome, the adjudicator's opinion is final.

The ultimate goal of the EYMF is to further each participant's musical education and experience. With that in mind, we want to make the 10th annual EYMF the biggest and best of so we've decided to take 2018 to restructure and reorganize so that we can offer a better experience for our performers. Join us in March 2019 and celebrate our 10th anniversary with the biggest festival yet!
