The Sir Ernest MacMillan Memorial Foundation Award
The Sir Ernest MacMillan Memorial Foundation Award is intended to provide significant career development opportunities to a young Canadian musician or music scholar, typically at the graduate level. The recipient is chosen through a competitive process that is national in scope. The award, $12,000 in recent years, is offered annually or biennially.
Reflecting Sir Ernest’s wide-ranging endeavours, the award is offered in different areas of music, areas that are not funded appreciably from other sources. Awards have been offered in composition, conducting, instrumental and vocal performance, pedagogy, early music, chamber music, collaborative piano and music education.
