VWMS Scholarship Competition 2019 - VOICE category

As Community Partner for the last several years with the Vancouver Women's Musical Society I've had the great rapture of seeing some of the city's top talent live in musical performance and consequently having the privilege of documenting this talent.


As a professionally trained opera singer myself, the VOICE competition has a special place in my heart. The Scholarship Competition rotates at VWMS between voice, piano and orchestral instruments every 3 years. There are other special requirements like needing to be a student, and restrictions around age too.


This competition is live, with audience welcome by donation, and this year was judged by the distinguished conductor, musicologist and organist Gerald van Wyck, and the incredible VWMS president, Edette Gagné who happens to be a voice coach, singer, pianist and well-respected local conductor.
