Join us in celebrating our 25th year!

Our goal is to provide an exceptional festival experience for Concert and Jazz Bands, Concert and Chamber Choirs, and Orchestra.

The focus is on active learning through participation of both student and teacher while providing interaction and performances with adjudicators, clinicians and guest artists who represent the very best in music and music education.

The festivals offer limited enrolment to ensure each registrant is able to participate in every activity. All activities are included in a single fee that includes travel, hotel and festival registration.

There are numerous festivals and festival companies for whom I have worked, and I have become very selective in lending my name or reputation. However, there are a select few for whom I have accepted a second, third or more invitations to work with student ensembles and teachers. Con Brio is as the very top of my list for offering an educationally driven festival that provides ‘once in a lifetime moments and goose bump opportunities’ that students and educators will remember throughout their entire lives. I recommend Con Brio to everyone at literally every level of ability and every type of ensemble.” Dr. Dale Lonis

Con Brio Festivals are proud to be the only Canadian festival organization elected to associate membership in the American Bandmasters Association.
