Welcome to the Edinburgh Competition Festival Association


2018 Festival

The 2018 Festival will be held from Tuesday 27 February to Sunday 11 March, with the preliminary round of the Concerto Class being held on Friday and Saturday 26 and 27 January. The closing date for entries will be 30 November 2017. The Syllabus will be available from early September. It will again be possible to make entries online via this website, and we encourage this as it greatly reduces administration.

About our Festivals

We run an annual festival which provides an opportunity for amateur musicians of all ages to perform their pieces in a friendly environment and, along with other performers of a similar ability, receive constructive feedback and advice from a specialist adjudicator.

Our programme of competitive and non-competitive classes allows performers of all abilities to take part. There are classes in a wide range of instruments, or combinations of instruments, as well as for singers. Full details are contained in our annual Syllabus, accessible on this website.

If you have participated in our festival before and benefitted from it, please tell your friends and encourage them to participate too. Newcomers are very welcome. More generally, if you have any comments or suggestions about our festival, we would like to hear them: please email us at email@ecfest.org.uk.

We now also have a Facebook page.
