Every year, the ORMTA showcases some of the most talented advanced instrumental music students from across Ontario in this prestigious competition. Students of ORMTA members first compete locally at the branch level. A local branch winner then qualifies to compete at their regional zone competition. Winners of each zone competition across Ontario then earn the right to advance to this provincial competition.
Students are expected to perform a stylistically balanced programme of two or more pieces within the 20 minute time limit at a Grade 10 and/or Associate level. Each student receives a written critique from a panel of distinguished adjudicators.
Special thanks to Yamaha Music Canada Ltd.
and many other organizations and individuals for their ongoing support of this competition.
ORMTA members, contact your local branch
to receive more information on the qualification process for your students.
For more information, please contact ORMTA Performance Competitions Convener, Alde Caloncagong.
