The Winnipeg Branch has two events planned for November 2021! Students may participate in our online Canada Music Week Recital OR register for a Masterclass with composer Julianne Warkentin. We ask that students do not register for both events to give everyone more equal opportunity.

Canada Music Week Recital 2021– Sunday November 21st 2:00pm on YouTube.

Playing it safe again this year, we encourage students of all levels to submit video recordings of compositions by Canadian Composers to be assembled into a YouTube recital. Solos or safe collaborations are welcome, and it would be wonderful to have students share a few words about the composer, collection, or interpretation of the piece.

To register:
-Submit a completed Video Release form to Melissa Gingrich at
-Submission deadline: Sunday November 14th

Limit 2 students per studio, please. The first 20 students will be accepted.
