2020 Canadian Concert Band Repertoire List

Note to directors: This is not the syllabus – for the syllabus, click here.

This is a non-exhaustive list of Canadian works that could satisfy the Canadian requirement for the festival.  This list was created to suggest a broader range of Canadian repertoire choices and expand the range of suggested, high quality wind band works from B100 to B600.  Only works listed on this year’s actual syllabus will satisfy the syllabus requirement (such works are marked on this list with an asterisk, and will satisfy both requirements).  MusicFest does not provide adjudication scores for pieces on this list unless they are also on the syllabus.  Please be sure to review the complete rules and regulations at www.musicfest.ca before selecting your repertoire.  Some of the pieces are listed below without a source; these works are available for perusal and purchase at the composer’s website or by contacting the composer directly.

Canadian works from the Required Repertoire list are marked with an Asterisk (*).
