The RRDFPA is please to announce the addition of 2 new awards for 2018.
Stephanie Hawkins Award – $100 will be awarded to a student registered in grade 7-9 at school who has entered three (3) different divisions of the Festival in a single year. The student must enter two (2) classes in each division. This award aims to encourage young performers to try other genres of performing arts and to take a risk. Including entries in French will increase the award to $150.
ARCT Award – $100 will be awarded for Outstanding Performance in Piano at the ARCT Level.
The Festival Committee has elected to remove the Quick Study as a compulsory class for the Vocal Rose Bowl. A Quick Study will still be required for the Piano and Instrumental Rose Bowl competition. The Vocal Syllabus has been updated on the Forms, Fees and Resources page.
