62nd Annual Young Musicians Competition Winners

March 16, 2016

A huge thank you to all the friends and family who came out to support the talented young musicians, as they competed for $5000 in prizes at the 62nd Annual Young Musicians Competition finals!

The juried competition was graciously supported by the Koerner family and friends for the Fred Koerner Prize; Peter Lang; Olga P. Bismanis; and the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation Canada, totalling $5,000.

The Audience Prize was generously donated by one of the society’s directors, Malcolm Hayes. $500 was awarded to both one junior group and one senior group, decided by the audience’s votes by submitting their ballots.
