M. Winnifred Sim Bursary



Winnifred Sim never auditioned for a job. And yet, she became a nationally recognized organist and conductor. She enjoyed a 44-year professional career as a piano and organ soloist and accompanist on CBC radio and television. She was the musical director of CBC television’s Hymn Sing which was broadcast weekly for 30 years. Referred to as a “trailblazer” by the Winnipeg Free Press, Winnifred has been a performer, adjudicator, examiner, and clinician across Canada. She is a published composer of choral anthems and chaired the committee that founded the National Youth Choir in 1984. Proceeds from the sale of her book “A Candid Coda” will be donated to the Winnipeg Music Festival.

The M. Winnifred Sim Bursary accompanies the Doris(Mills) Lewis Memorial Trophy, awarded for the most outstanding performance of an Oratorio Aria or J.S. Bach Aria by a Grade A or Honours Level vocalist.
