Scholarship Competition 2020 – Covid Updates

 

We are pleased to announce that the WYO plans to continue with the 2020 Scholarship Competition. To protect the health and safety of our members and stay within Public Health guidelines we are moving to a virtual and online approach.

We were happy to see a very robust “turn out” for the competition, with 40 applications, despite the challenging context we are living in this year.  It is clearly an event that is met with enthusiasm by the membership. We’re aware of the hard work that our musicians put into preparing for the event and are glad that we can still provide a venue in which you can share your performances.

The Junior and Intermediate divisions’ participation will be through video submission. Further details will be shared on the website and by email to the applicants over the following week. The deadline for video submission will be December 5th.

The Senior division competition will be held via live virtual performances over Zoom on December 5th. Further details will be shared on the website and by email to the applicants over the following week.

As in past years, all divisions will have two adjudicators who will provide written feedback to be shared with participants following the competition.
