Syllabus & Resource Manual
When considering entering the 2021 “Spirit of the Festival Showcase”, you may use the Syllabus and Resource Manual as a guide in choosing a performance piece or selection.
The Syllabus is a list of all of the classes that a participant may enter. It is divided into sections by division – Piano, Vocal, Instrumental and Drama. Each class has a unique identifying number. Classes are specific to an age group, a study or grade level and/or to a genre. The Vocal, Piano and Instrumental Syllabi have been significantly revised, as of January 21, 2016. Most of the changes are to align ourselves with the Manitoba Music Festival Association, which we now belong to. The Drama Syllabus has been updated as of January 2018 as well to accommodate the addition of some Manitoba Provincial classes. The Vocal Syllabus was changed in February 2018 to remove the requirement for a Quick Study as a qualification for the Vocal Rose Bowl.
The Resource Manual, which contains the full text of suggested drama selections, remains relatively unchanged from previous years.
