The Roberto and Mary Wood Scholarship is the largest of its kind awarded at a community performing arts festival in Canada. The $5,000 scholarship is open to instrumental and classical voice disciplines and must be used towards further musical education.
The concert features a group of outstanding musicians who are recommended during sessions by the Adjudicators. On the evening of the Roberto and Mary Wood Scholarship Concert, each performer has twenty minutes to perform their selections. The three-member jury, consisting of highly regarded professionals in their disciplines, then consults and returns to announce the winner.
