Medal win­ners to per­form in Cel­e­bra­tion of Tal­ent Con­cert

Sackville Tribune - - OP-ED - SACKVILLE, N.B.

Young mu­si­cians from across the Mar­itimes will gather at Brun­ton Au­di­to­rium in the Mar­jorie Young Bell Con­ser­va­tory of Mu­sic (134 Main St., Sackville) at 2 p.m. on Satur­day, June 17, to par­tic­i­pate in the an­nual Cel­e­bra­tion of Tal­ent Con­cert, which is pre­sented by the Mount Al­li­son Lo­cal Cen­tre Ex­am­i­na­tions in Mu­sic.

The con­cert will fea­ture per­for­mances by medal win­ners from the 2017 ex­am­i­na­tion ses­sion.

In late May and early June, more than 160 ex­ams in piano and voice were ad­min­is­tered in 10 cen­tres lo­cated through­out New Brunswick, Nova Sco­tia and Prince Ed­ward Is­land.

Medals will be awarded to stu­dents who re­ceived the high­est pro­vin­cial mark for each in­stru­ment in each of the mu­si­cal grades 1 through 10, with a min­i­mum mark of 85 per cent. All medal win­ners are be­ing in­vited to per­form at the an­nual Cel­e­bra­tion of Tal­ent Con­cert.

Es­tab­lished in 1911 by James Noel Brun­ton as a ser­vice to lo­cal piano teach­ers and their stu­dents, the Mount Al­li­son Lo­cal Cen­tre Ex­am­i­na­tion sys­tem has con­tin­ued to be a vi­tal part of the out­reach of the univer­sity’s de­part­ment of mu­sic.

Stephen Runge, direc­tor of Lo­cal Cen­tre Ex­am­i­na­tions, said: “It is a plea­sure to be able to cel­e­brate the tal­ents of young Mar­itime mu­si­cians, their teach­ers, and their fam­i­lies. I am pleased that the long and distinguished tra­di­tion of Lo­cal Cen­tre Ex­am­i­na­tions con­tin­ues to play such an im­por­tant role in the mu­si­cal ed­u­ca­tion of to­day’s youth.”

The public is in­vited to at­tend the Cel­e­bra­tion of Tal­ent Con­cert, for which there is no ad­mis­sion charge.

A re­cep­tion will fol­low the con­cert in the lobby of the Con­ser­va­tory.

For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the de­part­ment of mu­sic at 506-364-2374 or by email at lo­cal­cen­tre@mta.ca.
