Provost Music Festival Association

The first annual Provost Music Festival was held in 1973. Started up by a local group of community members invested in providing the opportunity, to participate in the performing arts, in Provost. The Provost Music Festival continues to be run by a volunteer festival executive. Our festival is a success due to the many hours of practice and dedication of our participants, guidance and encouragement of many teachers and accompanists, generosity of our sponsors and patrons, and countless hours provided by volunteers and association members. Our festival association is always open to new members and volunteers. Please contact us to get involve
