QCM will organize and present performance opportunities throughout the 13/14 season. These will vary between recital and master-class/workshop format, providing the opportunity for students to both perform and receive feedback from specialists. Students and instructors will be reminded of performance dates well ahead of time. Students interested in participating will need to register for an event by fully completing a concert registration form before the posted deadline. Due to the popularity of performance events, late applications will not be accepted. For events with limited capacity (such as Workshops/Master-classes), participation will be on a first registered, first served basis. Group class performance registration is the responsibility of the instructor. Solo performance registration is the responsibility of the performer (or parent/guardian). Members of the public are welcome to attend and support all events (no admission charge).

This fund, which was recently established thanks to the very generous support of a QCM member, is a momentous milestone for Queen's Conservatory of Music, and for families who value and support music education for young people.
