Celebration of Talent Concert in Sackville on Saturday
Young musicians from across the Maritimes will gather Saturday for the Celebration of Talent Concert.
Hosted by the Mount Allison Local Centre Examinations in Music, the concert is set for 2 p.m in the Marjorie Young Bell Conservatory inside Brunton Auditorium.
The concert will feature performances by medal winners from the 2017 examination session.
In late May and early June, more 160 exams in piano and voice were administered in 10 centres 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 invited to perform at the annual Celebration of Talent Concert.
Established in 1911 by Dr. 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 Department of Music.
The public is invited to attend the concert, for which there is no admission charge.
A reception will follow in the lobby of the conservatory.
