HPYO Earns Gold Award at 2016 MusicFest Canada

 

HAMILTON May 15, 2016: The Hamilton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (HPYO) – our region’s foremost symphony orchestra for student musicians up to age 24 – received a Gold Award in the Orchestra/String Division at this year’s MusicFest Canada held last week in Ottawa.

Founded in 1972, MusicFest Canada is a premier celebration of musical performance and education nationwide.

Our senior orchestra, under the baton of music director/conductor Colin Clarke, performed in a field that featured nine other high calibre ensembles, including the Newfoundland Symphony Youth Orchestra. The performance program that included the “Finale” from Tchaikovsky’s 4th, Handel’s Organ Concerto in B-flat (featuring HPYO harpist Emily Kens), and Williams’ “Symphonic Dances” received a rare standing ovation.

Participation at MusicFest 2016 provided HPYO student musicians with an opportunity to travel, interact with peers and learn from expert clinicians. It was a way for the HPYO to deliver on a vision of “leadership through music.”

Also at this year’s MusicFest Canada, HPYO violinist and concert master Madeleine Kay received an Honour Award in recognition of her special leadership contributions.
