FIRST CLASS HONOURS SCHOLARSHIPS & RECITAL

First Class Honours Scholarships are given annually to ORMTA students that achieve the highest marks in their practical and theoretical conservatory examinations. These scholarships motivate students to excel in their studies and are an opportunity for teachers, through ORMTA, to give back to students. Scholarships are made possible through generous donations from community members and businesses, used music sales, and ORMTA. To make a donation to the scholarship fund, please contact Amelie Langlois at amelielanglois@gmail.com

Victor Avila, Recital Convenor

"The First Class Honours Recital showcases ORMTA students who have achieved the distinction of First Class Honours on their practical examinations. Students that have won First Class Honours Scholarships are automatically invited to perform and all others are invited to audition in advance of the recital. The Recital is a chance to hear the beautiful music of ORMTA students!"
