Big Brothers Big Sisters Achievement Award is a $50 bursary, presented to ten young performers in the Truro Music Festival. This year’s event was held on Friday, May 11th at the Marigold Cultural Centre. Anna Rutherford, Community Relations Coordinator was pleased to present the talented youth with their awards.

The award winners were as follows:

For Piano Performance:  Elisabet Astatkie, Emilia Fitzgerald, Alyssa Hazelton

For Vocal Performance:  Ava Benedict, Ella Boudreau, Caelean Clements, Olivia Krzywonos, Erin MacDonald, Alex McDonah, Zoe Morgan

These are significant awards in that they acknowledge the achievement of performers who did not win major awards but who maintained a standard of excellence in their performances throughout the festival.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of  Colchester recognizes the value of music in children and youth’s development and we are happy to support this wonderful local initiative.
