Volunteers helping at the festival

We encourage all of our volunteers to have a Police Record Check (which includes a Vulnerable Sector Screening or VSS); it is best practice for volunteers.

Please note that if you wish to volunteer at a school, TDSB requires that you have a valid Police Check on file with them.

If you need assistance in obtaining a record check or renewing an existing one, please contact Kerry-Ann Watkis at info@torontokiwanis.ca


The Kiwanis Music Festival supports the development of the performing arts in Canada through the provision of scholarships and performance opportunities for talented young people.

The annual competition, held in locations throughout the GTA, calls upon a large number of dedicated volunteers, both Kiwanians and members of the public, to achieve its mission.

“Keynotes” are the group of volunteers who assist the adjudicators:  collecting music from the participants, preparing the award certificates, recording results in the master programme, and phoning in end-of-session results to the Festival Office.

If you enjoy music and young people, and would like to help ensure the success of the 2020 Festival, please join us for an exciting musical experience!

A training session for Keynote volunteers will be held in late January 2020 in a central location.
