After a difficult time for musicians, music educators and music students, we are looking forward to a return to in-person festivals!

Con Brio CloudFest was a great success and clearly filled a need, but it certainly wasn’t as exciting and vibrant as our live festivals.

We have begun planning and are anticipating extremely high demand for Con Brio 2022 after two years without festivals. Enquiries are already coming in from bands, choirs, orchestras and jazz bands.

If you are considering either festival for 2022


We will keep you updated as restrictions are lifted and we finalize planning.
We look forward to welcoming you.

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.
