Cel­e­bra­tion of Tal­ent Con­cert in Sackville on Satur­day

The Citizen-Record (Cumberland) - - COMMUNITY - CIT­I­ZEN-RECORD SACKVILLE, N.B.

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.
