Our brightest young Maritime musical talents unite, showcasing the 2019 PEI Provincial Festival top prize winners and Debut Atlantic’s 2019 Award for Musical Excellence recipient, 17 year old soprano Anna Mercer, from Coley’s Point, NL.
It is our privilege to honour these fine young performers and support them in reaching their goals. The PEI Kiwanis Music Festival Association is a non-profit organization that was established in 1946 to promote and encourage growth in music. Competitions across the province are judged by professional adjudicators and many performers have been invited to go on to compete at the national level. This year’s winners will be announced June 1st, 2019
Established in 1999, the Debut Atlantic Award for Musical Excellence is awarded annually to an Atlantic Canadian high school music student as chosen by a member of our distinguished alumni. The award recognizes talented youth and is designed to support and encourage the development of young musicians in Atlantic Canada. The Award consists of a $1,000 cash prize and a featured performance, as well as mentorship opportunities with a Debut Atlantic artist or alumni.
