Accommodations for out-of-town honour ensemble members have been arranged at the University of Toronto. Honour ensemble members are encouraged to stay at the university, but ARE NOT required to do so.
MusicFest is subsidizing the cost to have participants reside close to the rehearsal locations. Because of this subsidy, they are limited to members of the honour groups and can only be booked through the MusicFest Canada office. These arrangements are limited to six (6) nights only. For those wishing to stay at the university, the cost is $499.00 for the week. If you have a preference for the person sharing the room, that can be indicated on your online registration if you are accepted into the ensemble.
