2022 - The 96th Ayrshire Music Festival

on Monday, 26 September 2016. Posted in Festival 2015

The Ayrshire Music Festival aims to

• Represent the range of performing arts locally
• Raise the quality of performance
• Create the performers and informed audiences of the future


The 96th Ayrshire Music Festival



Following the curtailment of the 95th Ayrshire Music Festival in 2020 and the postponement of the Festival in 2021, we are delighted to announce that the 96th Ayrshire Music Festival will take place from 3rd – 17th March 2022.


The Ayrshire Music Festival exists to, “…advance, promote and encourage…the study, practice and performance of the arts of Music, Dance and Speech.” While the pandemic has had a significant impact on the delivery of music tuition, we hope that as many performers as possible can take advantage of the return of the festival to showcase the amazing young talent we have in Ayrshire. 


To encourage participation in the Orchestra classes held on the middle Saturday of the festival, the classes which were competitive will for this year only be Non-Competitive and the fees for these classes have been waived. Entrants will receive feedback from the adjudicator, but no trophies will be presented.


To also encourage audiences on the day, entry will be free.


We would also like to remind everyone about the Anything Goes class which will be held on the Saturday afternoon where anyone can take the opportunity to perform any piece in any style.


This syllabus for the 96th Ayrshire Music Festival (3rd – 17th March 2022) contains all the information for entering the festival and about the classes that are offered.


Thank you to everyone for your continued support.


Stay safe and stay well.
