The PGYCMF will be a special, one of a kind three-day music festival bringing together students, professional musicians, and local youth for an extravaganza of education and performance opportunities on the occasion of Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary. Participation in all events will be open to young musicians age 19 and under, at no charge.
A cooperative effort between the Community Arts Council, the Prince George Conservatory of Music, and the Prince George Symphony Orchestra, this unique event will feature instrumental and composition workshops to be led by top professionals in the area.
The Composition workshop will be open to young musicians of all levels. Students should write at their level and for their instrument, and be prepared to perform their composition at the workshop on the morning of Oct. 20. No other workshops will be run at this time, so that students will be able to take part in both the Composition workshop, and the workshop specifically for their instrument.
Additionally, selected workshop participants will have the opportunity to perform alongside the faculty of the PGCM and core members of the PGSO at a chamber concert on Saturday, Oct. 21.
On Sunday, Oct. 22 the PGSO will be performing a special afternoon concert featuring selections from the workshops. Additionally, selected intermediate and advanced workshop participants in the Strings and Winds/Brass categories will have the opportunity to join the PGSO for part of the performance!
Please submit applications no later than Oct. 10, 2017 at the following location:
Studio 2880, 2820 15th Ave.
Hours – 11:00-5:00, Tuesday through Saturday
