2023-2024 Music Awards
The deadline to apply for the Kingston Symphony Music Awards is fast approaching - Friday, March 8, 2024. There is $4,500 in prize money to be won! We have also made the application process a lot simpler than it was in past years. No letters of recommendation or personal essays are required and video recordings have been replaced with live performances before a panel of three judges. Those performances will be held on Sunday, April 14, 2024 at Harrison-LeCaine Hall on the Queen’s University campus. The performance schedule and other details will be emailed to each applicant after the March deadline. Please note there is a special category of awards for members of the Kingston Symphony’s three youth ensembles: Kingston Youth Orchestra, Kingston Youth Strings, and Kingston A-Strings.
For more information about the Music Awards or if you have questions, please contact Ann Lukits, chair of the Music Awards program, at email@example.com or through the Kingston Symphony Association office at (613) 546-9729.
