Frances E. Wickberg Bursary



Frances Evangeline Wickberg was born in Carberry where she spent her younger years. Music was an important part of her family’s life. She and her siblings learned piano and singing from an early age. Later in her teens, when the family moved to Winnipeg, she and her sister sang together at church and public gatherings.

Following her marriage, Frances taught music in schools. She studied and obtained her Bachelor of Music from the University of Manitoba and was proud to have been awarded the Gold Medal on graduation. She then settled into her long time career to teaching both piano and singing in her home. Through the years she played the organ at church and was an accompanist for her many students at the Winnipeg Music Festival. Later on in her career she enjoyed working as an adjudicator for many musical associations across Manitoba and Canada.

Frances was awarded an Honourary Life Membership in the Manitoba Registered Music Teachers’ Association in 1994. In 2005, she was given her 50-year membership in the Association. Frances loved and supported the many fine musical groups in the city from which came many lifelong friendships.

The Frances E. Wickberg Bursary accompanies the trophy of the same name, which is awarded for the most outstanding performance in a vocal competition of girls, 8 & 10 years of age and under.
