2021 National Honour Awards

2021 National Honour Awards

Each year, thousands of participants and hundreds of ensembles take part in the annual national festival finals known as MusicFest Canada. All adjudicated ensembles receive gold, silver, bronze, or merit standards of performance.

  • Gold Standard signifies that an ensemble has achieved excellence in all facets of its performance.
  • Silver Standard signifies that an ensemble is demonstrating an exceedingly high standard of musical performance.
  • Bronze Standard signifies an above average quality of performance with latitude for improvement.

The above three standards are recognized with a plaque.

  • Merit Standard acknowledges an average quality of performance and is not recognized by a plaque.

Ensembles who have qualified to attend the Festival may elect to perform for “Adjudication Only” with no standard to be awarded or considered.
