Q: When is the Woodstock Rotary Festival of Music in 2017?

A: Our classes will run from April 3rd to April 20th, 2017.

Q:  What is a syllabus?

A:  Our syllabus is a complete list of classes and class codes used to categorize each competitor's performance. It is available in paper from Merrifield’s Book Store in Woodstock or online.

Q:  How do I pay?

A: Payment this year is by cheque or e-transfer for either online or paper registrations.

Q:  Why do entries have to be in by mid-January when the Festival does not start until early April?

A:  This does seem like a long time between entry deadline and the start of the Festival.  Upon receipt of the 100's of entries, the scheduling team takes four weeks to computerize, organize and verify the entries and then schedule the venues and participants.  We try be providing about 4 weeks notice to the participants, accompanists, teachers and adjudicators as to the specific dates. We continue to look for more ways to improve this process.

Q:  Can I request to compete on a certain day during the Festival?

A:  Requests for performing on a certain day cannot be accommodated.  Our scheduling is planned to best fit the venue and adjudicator availability.  Our Festival dates in April are known in advance, we hope you are able to adjust your schedule.
