E-Gre Competition: Voice 2011

I just received this from the E-Gré  competition - a competition that has afforded some excellent musicians the opportunity to travel the country presenting recitals of contemporary repertoire!

Established 33 years ago as a tribute to composer and pianist/violinist Sonia Eckhardt-Gramatté, the E-Gré Competition promotes the performance of Canadian and contemporary music and the careers of emerging young Canadian artists. It is open only to Canadian citizens or permanent residents between the ages of 18 & 35. The Competition is held annually at the Brandon University School of Music in Brandon, Manitoba and alternates between Voice (2011), Strings (2012), and Piano (2013).
The 1st prize is a cash award of $5,000, a Canada-wide recital tour (which provides another $5,000), and the ARIAS Jean A. Chalmers Award of $5,000. The 2nd and 3rd prizewinners receive $3,000 and $2,000, and a special prize of $1,000 is also awarded for the best performance of the commissioned work. In addition, a prize of $500 is awarded to the best collaborative pianist.
The Rules and Application form can be found on our website at http://web.me.com/egrecompetition. The deadline for applications is November 15th, 2010.
