2020 WMC McLellan Competition for Solo Performance with the WSO
We are so sorry to advise that, after consultation with the WSO, the WMC McLellan Competition scheduled for April 15th 2020 has been cancelled. The WMC has allocated the WMC McLellan Competition awards of $20,000 to the three finalists, by dividing the funds equally.
The WMC thanks our dedicated audience during this past season for their support and wishes everyone the best in these uncertain times. Stay well.
The WMC will be offering our subscribers the option of a $50 tax receipt or a $50 refund for the loss of the two final concerts. If anyone has already purchased single tickets on line for the two cancelled concerts through Eventbrite, you may contact the WMC through our website – www.womensmusicalclubofwpg.ca or by phoning 204-944-9431 and indicate your option of a tax receipt or refund for the ticket(s) purchased.
We look forward to preparing our concert series for the year ahead – with the many challenges still facing us. Music helps to feed our souls – may your days be filled with the magic of music. ‘Till we meet again……..
In September 2005, we were delighted to announce the creation of the WMC McLELLAN COMPETITION for Solo Performance with the WSO. The prize available for this competition is due to a very generous bequest by a late member who attended concerts for several years. This competition is open to advanced Manitoba musicians who are pursuing performance careers, in all disciplines including voice, and gives the winners the opportunity to perform with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. The first competition was held in the spring of 2006, and offered three prizes totalling $20,000, with a first prize of $10,000.
This year’s competition will be accepting applications until November 15th 2019 at 5 p.m.
Preliminary Round will be a blind MP3/MP4 audition.
Semi-Finals will be a live audition on February 15th 2020 at Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall at the University of Winnipeg.
Finals will be held on April 15th 2020 at 7:30 p.m. at Jubilee Place at MBCI!
The three finalists will be performing a solo with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra!
Tickets can be purchased online through Eventbrite or at McNally Robinson Booksellers – Grant Park. Tickets will also be available at the door. For a season brochure or to order a subscription by phone – call 204-944-9431.
