UPEI students compete in National Music Festival

The Federation of Canadian Music Festivals will host the 2013 National Competition August 8–10, at Sir Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario. It is exciting for Prince Edward Island to be sending three solo competitors to this prestigious national festival. All three are students of the Department of Music at UPEI. Echo Lau, piano, a student of Dr. Frances Gray, graduated this spring with her Bachelor of Music. Branden Kelly is entering his fifth year of the Bachelor of Music Education programme with a focus in percussion performance. Lucas MacPhail, a student of Kevin MacLean, is entering his third year as a saxophone performer. They will be competing with other talented musicians chosen from provincial competitions in each province.

All three of these wonderful young musicians can be heard in recital on Sunday, July 28, 7:30 pm, at the Dr. Steel Recital Hall, UPEI campus. Echo will be accompanied both here and in Waterloo, by Frances Gray. Branden and Lucas will be accompanied by Frances McBurnie.

Admission will be by donation to assist Echo, Branden, and Lucas with expenses as they travel to Waterloo for this competition. For more information, please contact Dr. Frances Gray at (902) 566-0680 or fgray@upei.ca
