The vision of Yip’s Music Festival is to bring together fine young musicians and singers through musical performances of the highest quality in the tradition of classical music. Since its inception in 1994, this Festival has helped thousands of students enrich their lives through participation, education, and motivation, as well as build their self-confidence. Each year, the calibre and standard of Yip's Music Festival continue to rise; it is regarded as one of the foremost competitions in the York Region, Ontario. We hope this tradition will continue to inspire future generations of young musicians and singers to present their best in competition categories of Piano, Violin, Musical Theatre and Chamber Music.
Besides welcoming participants and audience members from diverse backgrounds, Yip's Music Festival has also enlisted numerous esteemed adjudicators over the years. Participants have benefited greatly from the valuable comments and advice from YMF adjudicators.
Due to COVID-19 health concerns, Yip's Music Festival 2021 will be held in a virtual environment, where participants will submit a video of their performance, rather than in person. Details on the changes in procedures can be found in the Syllabus section (under Rules and Regulations). While the format has changed for 2021, the same high level of organization and fairness is to be expected of this Festival.
