      I am thrilled to announce that we have won the 2013 OMFA  Provincial Competition for amateur choirs in Ontario with our rendition of a 15th century Ave Maria and our director/composer Pierre Massie's original arrangement of Jesus Ahatonnia!

This is the second time that we have won the provincial Hon. Barbara A. Hagerman award. The first was in 2010 :)

Here is our 2013 Kiwanis win that led up to the award.

 How your choir can join in the fun

1. Compete at your local music festival -- ours was the National Capital Kiwanis Music festival. Follow the instructions carefully for choice of pieces, number of pieces and documents required, such as sheet music.

2. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!

 3. Okay, you attained Gold and were invited to the Provincials by the adjudicator .

4. You don't have to travel to either the Provincials or the Nationals with the choir to compete. You can make a recording with a representative of OMFA in attendance. She will  then take the recording directly to the competition. Don't forget to include all necessary scores and documentation as required by OMFA.

We try to treat the recording like a regular rehearsal to relieve some stress. 

Have fun!
