William Andrews Award Announcement 2022

Congratulations to Central Toronto Branch of ORMTA and the Halifax Branch of NSRMTA for receiving the William Andrews Award for their innovative Canada Music Week events. Please read their full reports and details of their creative events in the Winter issue of Canadian Music Teacher Magazine.

This year we received three innovative and creative applications. An independent panel of three RMT’s from outside the applicant’s Province made the decision for the recipient of the William Andrews Award.

Does your branch have an innovative Canada Music Week® event?

CFMTA/FCAPM is presenting two awards of $250 each to the two entries judged as the most worthy by a panel of judges from across Canada. All branches in Canada are eligible to submit an application.

These awards are made possible by the generous annual donation of William Andrews of Toronto, ON.

William Andrews is an excellent musician and is supportive of young musicians. In addition to his financial support for CFMTA/FCAPM, he is our travel agent for delegate travel and special events.
