Con Brio Festivals


2021 – Friday, April 30 – Sunday, May 2

Welcome to Sun Peaks, a beautiful Alpine Village located 30 minutes outside of Kamloops, BC and an inspiring location for a music festival.  For 15 consecutive years, Con Brio has turned Sun Peaks into a Band, Jazz Band and Choral camp culminating in massed choir and massed band performances. The village provides a safe, walkable festival environment for all participants.

Con Brio Sun Peaks is a NON-COMPETITIVE festival with a grading option. There are three festival categories that operate concurrently within the Sun Peaks Music Festival:

1. Concert & Symphonic Band: 22 or more performers in balanced combination of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments.

2. Concert & Chamber Choir:  20 or more voices in balanced parts performing concert/chamber choir repertoire.

3. Jazz/Stage Band*:  16 to 24 instrumentalists. Larger ensembles will be considered. *Offered only in conjunction with registration of a concert band, choir or orchestra.
