Steamboat Mountain Music bursary fund establishedPosted: August 12, 2012
The weather was warm and sunny. The program was a celebration of local and regional music. The volunteers and audience were enthusiastic and numerous.
All these elements added up to a successful July 7 music festival in Edgewater. Now that the bills are all paid, Steamboat Mountain Music Society has a modest sum of $750 with which to set up a bursary to assist musicians with their musical education and development.
Attention aspiring musicians: applications are open.
These bursary funds may be used for musical programs of all types: short workshops, music camps, courses, individual or group lessons, master classes, college or university music programs. All forms of music, all types of musical learning aspirations are included: playing technique and theory, composing, performing. Rental or upgrading cost of a musical instrument may also be considered.
Applicants must live in the Columbia Valley in the region from Parson to Canal Flats. Musicians of all levels will be considered: beginners as well as experienced players of any age may apply.
Applications must be submitted no later than September 30, and candidates will be notified by October 31. Funds awarded must be used by the recipient before the end of the 2013 calendar year.
For further information, please phone Anne 250-347-9860. Application forms and full information are available through the Steamboat Mountain Music Festival website www.steamboatmtnmusicfest.ca
