Spring and Summer Events

We welcome the Summer with not only beautiful sunshine and flowers, but with beautiful music to warm our hearts and minds! Each season brings wonderful new opportunities for our students and our teachers to continue to grow in our love of music! 

Our Spring Auditions and Branch Recitals culminated in our June Awards Festival, in which the students who have achieved First Class honours have the opportunity to perform and receive trophies and scholarships.  This year included numerous excellent pianists, string players, and vocalists! We continual to welcome you to come and support our wonderful musicians and enjoy some lovely music at all of our recitals and Festivals!   


The GTA Zone Competitions were held on Saturday, May 25th, 2019 at the Newmarket Old Town Hall. The adjudicators were Li Wang (piano) and Leslie Fagan (vocal).  Our North York/York Region Branch of the ORMTA had three winners that day!  They were then invited to attend, and the First Place winners to perform at, the GTA Zone Winners' Concert and Awards Ceremony on Sunday, June 2nd at the Yamaha School of Music in Markham.
