BROCK: After much discussion and support from the private and public school music teachers in our festival community, the Sunderland Lions Music Festival is moving its dates to April 14th to 24th, 2020 for various adjudicated sessions and April 27th to 30th, 2020 for the Festival of Stars. The elementary and secondary band workshop sessions will be held April 1st and 2nd, 2020 at Port Perry High School.
This move has been primarily prompted to avoid the poor weather we have experienced in February, during the last few years. Second, the move to a later date, allows the teachers more time to better prepare their students in solos and groups for participation.
The upcoming festival will be the club’s 63rd festival but the first to be held outside the months of February or March. As with any event of length, there will be some minor conflicts that we will have to work out. We hope the public will mark their calendars now and help us make this re-scheduling work for the betterment of all involved.

The deadline for piano entries will be January 15th, 2020 with all other entries due on January 31st, 2020.
