  2. Adult fees and times are based on grade levels listed in the charts.

  4. To be considered for an award, participants must perform a Concert Group or 2 solo pieces.
  5. PLEASE NOTE:To qualify for the Provincial Festival, a student must enter 2 solo classes in one discipline. PABC considers a Concert Group (consisting of 2 or 3 pieces) as 1 class only, therefore he/she must enter 1 Concert Group plus another Solo Class - or - enter 2 (or more) separate solo classes.
  6. Participants recommended to PERFORMING ARTS BC in two disciplines may attend in ONE discipline only.
