We would like to announce that we plan to include an additional competition within the National Piano and Voice Competitions in 2021. A prize of $500.00 will be awarded in both the Piano and the Vocal categories for the best performance of a work demonstrating Canadian musical diversity.  Competitors are hereby encouraged to include a work demonstrating some aspect of Canadian music diversity in one of their competition programmes.  A short written explanation of the specific aspect of diversity demonstrated and its significance to the performer must be submitted with the application form.  (100 words or less)  This new competition has been created in order to celebrate our commitment to musical diversity in Canada and it will harmonize beautifully with the theme of our virtual conference 2021.
