Congratulations to the 2013 winner, Eleanor Yu, violin!
A panel of four adjudicators heard the finalists in live audition on Friday, April 26, 2013 at 7:00 pm in the University of Lethbridge Recital Hall, and they had such a tough job that they declared a tie! The final standings were:
Joe Porter, percussion :: Brittany Prazak, trombone tied for second place
Brynna Pokarney, flute in third place
Many thanks again to our live adjudicators
Rolf Boon, composition :: Marvin Dueck, choral conducting
Chris Morrison, trumpet :: Laura Schlessinger, cello
Thanks also to our first-round adjudicators
