Madge O. Stevens Bursary



Madge Stevens (1918-1990) was a resident of Winnipeg who had had a life-long interest in music and the Music Festival. She participated in various classes as a performer, conductor, accompanist, and choir member.

Madge was educated at the University of Winnipeg, the University of Manitoba, Northwestern University in the US and at Oxford and the University of London in the UK. She chose teaching as a career and, as an elementary school teacher in Winnipeg schools, she realized the value of piano lessons for young children and wished to help a young musician further his/her study of piano by establishing this bursary.

Madge trained school choirs and was a student of piano and pipe organ, attaining her ARCT diploma in organ performance. She was a church organist for many years as well as a member of McClure United Church Bell Ringers.

The Madge O. Stevens Bursary is awarded to a Grades/Levels 5 or 6 pianist as selected by the adjudicator.
