Your Concert Tickets
Concerts are an important part of the KSMF music education programs. Included in your tuition fee are non-transferable student tickets for the week of your program. Pick up your concert tickets at the school foyer every day after classes end.
Absolutely No Nut Products
Do not bring nuts and/or nut products to KSMF. This includes peanuts, sandwiches, cookies etc. We have students attending KSMF who have serious nut allergies.
Behavior: KSMF Expectations and Consequences
Each student is entitled to learn without unnecessary distraction. We expect participants to treat themselves and others with respect and to take proper care of loaned instruments, equipment and facilities.
Our faculty, staff and volunteers do their best to be understanding, but because our timeline is short, it may not be possible to give “second chances” to those who engage in unacceptable behaviour. Uncooperative participants will be removed from the program and no refund will be given. Unacceptable behaviour may result in future registrations being declined.
The Festival is not a school. KSMF cannot provide educational assistants or one-on-one supervision of students that may be provided in a school setting. In the event that a student does not have the attention span required for their program, KSMF, at its sole discretion, may remove the student from the program.
Refunds, if any, will be given at KSMF’s sole discretion.
Parents/guardians: Please explain KSMF behaviour expectations as needed to younger students before they attend the festival.
