2010 ORMTA Music Writing Competition Results

Congratulations to all the students, including the first place winners who will now represent ORMTA in the 2010 CFMTA Student Composer Competition.

This year’s CMW Music Writing Competition was a huge success! Teachers from branches all across the province submitted their students. With 71 entries in seven different classes, the popularity of this competition in music creativity continues to grow. The ORMTA would like to thank Nancy Telfer for her insightful and thorough adjudications and Eleanor Marzetti for her gracious donation for student scholarships. Thanks also go out to the teachers for submitting the work of their students. And most importantly, congratulations to all the budding “Anne Crosbys” and “Linda Niamaths” for pouring their creative juices into their submissions.
