Copyright Obligations



  • Every performer must have in their possession an original copy of their music.
  • Although encouraged, playing from memory is not a requirement at our Festival.   Please note that in most classes memorization IS required at the Provincial Festival.  Check the AMFA rules for your discipline to be sure.
  • If a performer has an accompanist, they are required to have TWO original copies of their music – one for the adjudicator, and one for the accompanist.  The accompanist can play from a photocopy, but must have an original beside them.
  • Downloaded music can be considered an original, as long as the performer has attached a receipt showing payment for that download.
