3rd Annual Scholarship Competition
Announcing the 2018 Third Annual Madeline Pape Memorial Competition!
The competition date is Saturday June 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the newly renovated Stencel Hall. The jury for 2018 includes Sarah Ho - piano soloist & teacher, and Aaron Au - violinist & violist. They will have a challenging job choosing just one winner. Students must be chosen by their teacher to participate in the event and each will receive a $75 cash award. Parameters for choosing the winner of the $500 scholarship are "a polished performance, regardless of RCM level, which is musically interesting and enjoyable to listen to".
MORE ABOUT THE MADELINE PAPE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Mr. Fred Pape of Edmonton set up an endowment for Taylor students in 2014 in honour of his wife, Madeline Buckles Pape. Part of the proceeds are directed towards students of the Conservatory of Music.
Mrs. Pape attended this institution in 1941-42 before becoming a teacher. She loved music, and Mr. Pape says he hopes the scholarship will encourage deserving students to apply their God-given talents for the glory of God.
