Inverness Music Festival provides opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to develop their potential in a wide range of musical, dance and speech events. There is something to suit everyone so come along and have a go. All performers are adjudicated and given a written appraisal of their performance. Some classes are run as competitions, but others are run as showcases and are fully non-competitive. Any class can be entered on a non-competitive basis.
