Whistler Cantando Music Festival

Click here for the 2018 festival program.

Whistler Cantando Music Festival is a three-day, non-competitive band and choir festival that brings together schools from across Canada and The United States. Held in the beautiful Whistler Village, it is big enough to have all the amenities of a world class resort, yet small enough for you to feel its unique mountain culture and hospitalities.

Celebrating 20 years at the Whistler Resort!

"Just wanted to tell you how much we loved every moment of our trip. Your attention to detail is outstanding and we truly appreciate your work making this trip a lifelong memory for our students"

- Ms. Anita Anton, Cardinal Carter Catholic Toronto School 

We had a great tour!  So much fun! Great adjudicators and opportunities for students at the festival with the massed choir, girls and boys voices clinics, and great concerts to watch!  Our students loved the opportunity to perform in the adjudicators choice concert! " - Heidi Wood, Lord Beaverbrook Choir  

"What a GREAT time we had in Whistler. I don’t know how it could have been better and thanks for giving us to hot weather pool days. We had a great travel and Festival schedule, we had a great hotel, we had great meals, we had great weather. I have never seen so many happy girls over a period of 4 days with no issues at all. The girls are glowing as we debrief and I will recommend that the Whistler Festival be a continuing event every two years. I will not be back next year as I will now retire with great memories from my year at CGS."

- Dr. Donald Christianson
