WS Welcome to the 2021 Barrie Music Festival.

To provide a safe environment for our entrants we are hosting a Virtual Music Festival for 2021.

Take some time to peruse the Syllabi (located under the ‘Festival Information’ tab in the menu bar). You will find exciting new classes, virtual master classes with our fantastic adjudicators, and a new price structure. We are excited for 2021.

Our new Solarislive events site has launched – https://events.solarislive.com/Barrie-Music-Festival 

Entrants are now able to view the syllabi, classes, registration forms, schedules and results on Solarislive. 

Registration entry and video submission Dates:

Registration opens: February 26, 2021

Registration closes: March 17, 2021

In order to register, entrants will need to create a Solarislive account. In the ‘Event Information’ menu, on the Solarislive site, I have added a link to a “How to Register” video tutorial. Please take some time to view this helpful video.

Entrants will use YouTube to record their performances. Entrants will need to have their YouTube link when registering.

Solarislive allows teachers to sign up for an optional Teacher’s Account. This will allow the teacher to view students’ status on-line. In the ‘Event Information’ menu, on the Solarislive site, I have added a video tutorial link to a “Creating a Teacher’s Account” that you may find helpful.
