The Canada Music Week recital for this year will be on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 7:30, Northwood United Church. The deadline for submissions is November 1. Solo pieces will need to be memorized. We are encouraging duo performances and teacher performances. (Remember, this is a celebration of Canada Music Week, and not a competition!)

Surprise! . . . . . . . And Then There Were Two
The South Fraser Branch determined to host a Celebration Recital to feature Canadian compositions in honour of Canada Music Week.
Over 60 recital entries were received, solo and duo pianists, singers, violinists, and cellists. All levels were represented from Preliminary through Diploma. Local composers such as Irene Voros, Stephen Chapman and Harold Birston, as well as away composers such as Heather Schmidt, Nancy Telfer, and Leonard Cohen had all found a place in the hearts of young musicians. And to the delight of the program organizer, most every piece selection was unique.
So there were two Recitals, two door prizes, and two parties with cake in Canada’s 149th year. November the 19th 2016 was truly a Canadian Music Week Celebration.
