The First Annual Take The Stage Music Festival will take place on March 1 to 5, 2022 at St. Matthew's United Church, 333 Crosby Avenue, Richmond Hill, Ontario. There will be both Live and Online divisions. The festival is a qualifying event for the Ontario Music Festival Provincials (OMFA)
Our mission is to give aspiring young artists an opportunity to experience and learn how to captivate an audience by "Taking The Stage." The insightful feedback from our world class adjudicators and the masterclass we offer to all participants will be geared to show young musicians that playing music on stage is more than just hitting the right notes. It is about telling the story using your entire mind, body and heart.
All contestants who participate in the online festival gala will be offered a free masterclass in live performance.
Scholarships will be awarded to select winners.
