Vancouver is enriched with a diversity of music cultures from around the world.   The music of Vancouver represents many people that live in the city. Vancouver's culture exemplifies multiculturalism and diversity thus maintaining its uniqueness. In an attempt to maintain it, the Russian Music Festival was created in March 2007. Participants were asked to perform music by Russian composers, such as P.Tchaikovsky, D.Shostakovich, D.Kabalevsky, M.Glinka and many others.

The Russian Music Festival is comprised of participants from a variety of musical backgrounds, ranging from an introductory level to ARCT, as well as honourable judges. To conclude the music festival, the appointed judges determine a winner from each level and grade category. The winning participants are awarded monetary gifts. Every contestant in the music Festival also receives a Certificate of Participation.

Teachers who present the most number of participants and receive the most amounts of first places are awarded with special prizes.

Both the participants and the audience alike found the recent Russian Music Festival to be an exciting cultural experience. They enjoyed the music performed vocally as well as on the piano, violin, saxophone and clarinet. The success of the Russian Music Festival in March 2007 and March 2008 has encouraged the Festival Committee to continue on producing this event and making it even more interesting.                                                                                                                      Vancouver International Festival of Russian Music  will take place on March 6,7th and 8th 2010 and its Gala Concert will be held on March 14th 2010.
